What is a Medical Home?

In 1967, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) introduced the concept of a Medical Home a place that represents a home base for any child’s medical care.

Today’s medical home is a cultivated partnership between the patient, family, and pediatrician in cooperation with sub-specialists and support from the community.

The patient/family is the focal point of this model, and the medical home is built around this center. Care under the medical home model must be accessible, family-centered, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective.

Casper Children’s Center is Wyoming’s only certified Pediatric Patient Centered Medical Home.
