Medical Home

What is a Medical Home?

The Medical Home… is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective care (AAP policy statement, 2002, reaffirmed 2008). This means our practice, as your Medical Home, is a central resource for all of your child’s care needs. In a Medical Home, your doctor, nurse or physician's assistant and their staff who see your child for routine check-ups – makes you feel like you are the most important part of the health care team. You are welcome and invited to participate in all aspects of your child’s care.

At Through the Years Pediatrics we are currently working toward achieving recognition through the National Center Quality Assurance Committee for Patient Centered Medical Home. Being recognized will be quite an accomplishment for us and lead to better patient care and satisfaction. You can help us by becoming familiar with our medical home.
