Your Child's Medical Home: What You Need to Know

A medical home is the kind of care we all want and deserve – it is the way your child’s pediatric healthcare team approaches providing care for your child.

A medical home means that:

Your pediatric team
  • Knows your child’s health history
  • Listens to your concerns and needs, as well as your child’s
  • Works in partnership with you to make sure that the medical and non-medical needs of your child and family are met
  • Creates a trusting, collaborative relationship with you and your child
  • Treats your child with compassion and an understanding of his/her strengths
  • Develops a care plan with you and your child when needed
  • Respects and honors your culture and traditions
You and your child
  • Are comfortable sharing concerns and questions with your pediatric team and other health care providers
  • Routinely communicate your child’s needs and family priorities to your pediatric team who promote communication and coordination between your family and other health care providers, as well as educational and community services when necessary
