Creating a patient-centered medical home model delivers exceptional, comprehensive care
Access Community Health’s Joyce and Marshall Erdman Clinic is a Federally Qualified Health Center. It offers primary, dental, and behavioral health care, as well as pharmacy services and resources for housing, food assistance, and employment counseling in one convenient location. In planning for its newest location, Access saw the opportunity to reinvent its approach to care. Goals driving the project included:
- Improving efficiency
- Developing a top-notch facility to support recruitment and retention
- Maximizing return on investment while working within a conservative budget
Access chose ERDMAN to program, plan, design, and deliver a facility that provided a new approach to care with a patient-centered medical home model and an integrated care team concept. Our planning and design teams considered efficiency and throughput to serve more patients and broaden access to exceptional care. As a result, a comfortable, calming space was created to enhance the patient experience.
ERDMAN effectively partners with Access and helps us provide a welcoming environment for our patients that is affordable and sustainable. ERDMAN’s expertise has been instrumental as Access designed and constructed a new facility and renovated another. The ERDMAN team is versatile, skilled and reliable.
