If walking into the Kids First offices feels a little like coming home, that’s by design. From the front desk to the nurses to the practitioners, the staff at Kids First have always strived to create a warm and welcoming practice. It’s a warmth that makes kids more comfortable and doctor visits more pleasant.
Kids First has been certified as a Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) since 2014.
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of 21st century primary care that combines access, teamwork and technology to deliver quality care and improve health,” says NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “NCQA’s PCMH Recognition shows that Kids First Pediatric Partners has tools, systems and resources to provide patients with the right care at the right time.”
In practice, this means we have a team approach to providing medical care for children. By coming to our practice for well visits and by speaking to our team over the phone regarding important issues, the providers will know your children’s health histories, concerns and needs. In addition, providers can understand children’s strengths, develop a care plan with parents and children when needed and respect and honor every family’s culture and traditions. Children who come to the practice are able to make connections with our providers as they grow, making them feel more comfortable sharing.
