Medical Home

​A medical home is a trusting partnership between you, your child, and your pediatric primary health care team. A medical home means that your pediatrician:

  • Knows your child's health history
  • Listens to your concerns and needs (as well as your child's)
  • Treats your child with compassion
  • Has an understanding of their strengths
  • Develops a care plan with you and your child when needed
  • Respects and honors your culture and traditions

Your pediatrician can help you and your child access and coordinate specialty care, other health care and educational services, in and out of home care, family support, and other public/private community services that are important to the overall well-being of you and your child. ​Visit the AAP's National Center for Medical Home Implementation site to learn more about the importance of medical home for you and your family.
