About

Madigan’s Patient Centered Medical Home Primary Care Clinics are Army Medical Homes with an interdisciplinary approach to delivering evidence-based, comprehensive primary care– coordinating care delivered outside of the primary care setting and proactively engaging patients as partners in health.

The Army Medical Home is designed around one core principle: putting patients first. The Army Medical Home is Army Medicine’s gateway to influence the “life space” where patients make decisions on the key determinants of health and wellness–sleep, activity, and nutrition (that is, the Performance Triad).

Each patient will partner with a team of healthcare providers – physicians, nurses, behavioral health, clinical pharmacists, physical therapy and case management professionals to develop a comprehensive, personal healthcare plan. This team will form a partnership with you to provide improved access, coordinate needed services, answer your questions, and ensure that you get the care you need. Your Medical Home team will remain the same as long as they continue to work within your medical home. This will improve your continuity of care and allow you to develop a closer partnership with your team. The Army Medical Home model has been shown to improve patients’ overall health, resulting in fewer emergency and urgent care visits, decreased hospital admissions, shorter inpatient stays and fewer inpatient readmissions among other positive results.

Sub Clinics/Services

The IMC provides holistic primary care services using a team-based approach. Our healthcare team includes:

  • The Core Care Team consists of you the patient, your assigned provider (Internal Medicine staff physician, Nurse Practitioner or Resident Physician), and your assigned nurse. The primary goal of the Core Care Team is to form a strong, individualized and personal relationship and healthcare partnership in order to ensure that each patient’s individual healthcare and wellness goals are met to the greatest extent possible.
  • The Extended Care Team consists of our Front Desk Staff, our Registered Nurses, Nurse Case Managers, Clinical Pharmacists, Clinical Psychologists, and Social Worker. The Extended Care Team provides additional appointments and care services for patients who will benefit from additional help in planning and navigating their healthcare needs in the setting of complex or chronic care needs as well as care transitions (hospitalizations, frequent Emergency Room visits, multiple specialty care provider involvement, etc.)
