The 78th Medical Group Family Health Clinic (FHC) is your Medical Home. The FHC provides primary care to active duty, dependents (age 2 and up) and to retirees. The FHC consists of three Family Health Teams (FHTs). FHTs are comprised of a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant, a nurse and 5 medical technicians. Each FHT has a goal empanelment of approximately 2500 patients assigned. The FHT mission is to provide holistic, efficient, evidence based medical care to meet the individual needs of each patient, thus embracing the concept of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH).

PCMH focuses on the patient being the center of healthcare and the driver of care rather than a passive recipient. PCMH provides care that is truly patient-centered considers patients' cultural traditions, personal preferences and values, family situations and lifestyles. It makes the patient and their loved ones an integral part of the care team who collaborate with healthcare professionals in making clinical decisions. 

Patient centered care puts responsibility for important aspects of self-care and monitoring in the patient's hands, along with the tools and support they need to carry out that responsibility. Patient centered care ensures transitions between providers and healthcare settings are respectful, coordinated, and efficient.
