UIHS is proud to practice a Patient-Centered Medical Home for our native people and their families. Our focus is on improving the health of whole people, families, the community and on increasing trust, respect, and dignity with patients primary care providers and their health care team.
Our home is a health care setting that encourages partnerships between individual patients, their personal primary care providers, and when appropriate the patient’s families to assure patients get the care they need and want. We strive to create a culturally sensitive atmosphere that will enable patients to trust and participate in their health care decisions.
The Patient Centered Medical Home is not a final destination instead, it is a model for achieving primary care excellence that focuses on patient-and-family-centered care while ensuring access for all native patients and their families where care is of high quality and improves the health care of the individual and the strength of the family.
