Health Services

Primary Care

Weed Army Community Hospital uses the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model. PCMH is a team-based model, led by a physician, which provides continuous, accessible, family-centered, comprehensive, compassionate and culturally sensitive healthcare in order to achieve the best outcomes. The model is based on the concept that the best healthcare has a strong primary care foundation with quality and resource efficiency incentives.

The PCMH is a departure from previous traditional healthcare models because it focuses on the "whole person" concept, preventive care and early intervention and management of health problems rather than on high-volume, episodic, over-specialized and inefficient care. A PCMH practice is responsible for all of a patient's healthcare needs and for coordinating/integrating specialty healthcare and other professional services.

Services

Primary care also includes medically necessary diagnostic laboratory and X-ray procedures and tests. Primary care is used to treat adults and children, including infants and newborns. Common services include:

• Routine care, like an annual physical exam
• Medical treatment for non-emergency or non-urgent care
• Follow-up care if you have ongoing medical problems
• Preventive health care, like immunizations and allergy shots
• Family planning
• Patient education and counseling

Primary Care services include Ambulatory Services, Allergy/Immunology Service and Telehealth Services.
