Kima:w Medical Center has obtained certification from Joint Commission as a Primary Care Medical Home.

Our goal is to provide high quality, patient centered care. Although we are currently short staffed we support your right to a designated primary care clinician who involves you in developing your own treatment plan.  A team based approach includes a RN care manager who works with the provider and a team member to assist with management of your referrals, coordination of your care, including with hospital or specialty care or second opinions. Ideally your provider routinely works with a nursing staff member in the clinic and a Community Health Representative provides assistance at your home.  When necessary a Public Health Nurse or provider also do home visits. Behavioral Health staff are also part of the team depending on your individual needs. This full complement of team members are available to support your understanding and self management of your health and wellness goals.
