The most innovative aspect of the clinic's design is its approach to caring for patients and families through an integrated-care model that emphasizes wellness over intervention and focuses on family-centered lifestyle changes. In this Patient-Centered Medical Home model, a highly-collaborative team of providers works together in an open space. Such teams made up of doctors, nurses, medical assistants and specialists care for entire families. The team learns about a familys medical and non-medical issues, which ensures comprehensive prenatal to end-of-life care and support on the patients journey to optimal wellness.
