MWCHC has maintained its ambulatory care accreditation since 1983, reflecting our commitment to providing safe and quality patient care in compliance with the standards set by The Joint Commission.

Patient-Centered Medical Home
MWCHC is a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)—not simply as a place, but as a model of the organization of primary care that delivers the core functions of primary health care according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
What is a PCMH?
It means we are both a Patient-Centered and Primary Care Medical Home. We are responsible for meeting our patient’s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness for acute, and chronic care.
Why is this important?
As a PCMH organization, we provide a promising approach to improving your primary care quality, reduce costs, and improve your experience with our health care professionals. We respect your values and preferences while providing education, access to care, and continuity of care.
What PCMH means for you?
A patient-centered medical home is a care approach that brings together an expert team focused on you. A medical home begins with your primary care clinic, where a team of professionals work together to provide you with a new, expanded type of care. Your expert team includes: a Provider, Nurse/Medical Assistant, Dietitian, Behavioral Health, a Case Manager/Referral Specialist, and Pharmacist who supports you and your family or caregiver in managing your care.
We are here to serve you. We don’t just treat your chronic condition, but we manage it for better health outcomes.
