Wood River Health Services is a private, nonprofit, Federally Qualified Community Health Center providing top quality healthcare and related services to southern Rhode Island and southeastern Connecticut residents. Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of our community by assuring access to affordable high quality healthcare, coordinated services, and health related information.
Patient Centered Medical Home Transformation
Wood River Health Services is changing its delivery of healthcare for you and your family. We are now ceritified as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). This is like having an old style family doctor, but with a team of professionals using the newest technology and information to provide you with the best healthcare possible.
This change builds upon the strengths and values of the positive relationship you currently have with your provider. We are including an expanded team of healthcare professionals to support you and your family members. Our PCMH care-teams include physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, medical assistants, health advocates, and auxiliary staff to assist with your care.
PCMH is an approach to providing comprehensive coordinated primary healthcare to you and your family. It is not a hospital, facility or homecare. It is a coordinated system of healthcare delivery with you at the center of your healthcare universe. We want you to have one central place for the coordination of your healthcare. We want that place to be Wood River Health Services.
