Medical Home

A "Medical Home" is when a family has a medical provider or group of providers who care for the family on an on-going basis. 

The consistent medical advice and care, the maintenance of medical records, familiarity with the medical staff, and respect for the family's medical needs are some of the advantages of maintaining a "Medical Home."
