A PCMH Practice: Focused on You
Our Family Medicine practice is a PCMH--Patient Centered Medical Home. In a PCMH, the focus of the medical practice is on the entire patient and specifically on disease prevention rather than disease treatment. Despite its name, PCMHs are not “homes” but medical practices that have met specific criteria set by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.
How does a PCMH differ from a traditional practice? PCMHs coordinate care for their patients, increasing the use of preventive care and regular screenings, and supporting people with diabetes, depression, and other chronic diseases in new and innovative ways. The idea is that if the disease is prevented, expensive treatments will never be necessary. It is far more costly to have open heart surgery than to prevent heart disease by following physician-guided prevention regime.
South County Hospital Family Medicine is located in the EG/NK Medical & Wellness Center on Route 2 in East Greenwich, RI. We offer convenient hours, including some evenings, and we accept all insurances. For an appointment, call 401 471-6760. You can also email an appointment request/referral request to us and we will call you the next business day. We look forward to meeting you!
