Little Falls Hospital, part of the Bassett Healthcare Network, is pleased to announce that Dolgeville and Newport Primary Care Centers have received Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition. The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a care delivery model whereby patient treatment is coordinated through their primary care physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand.

The objective is to have a centralized setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, health information exchange and other means to assure that patients get the indicated care when and where they need it.

“This puts our primary care centers among a select few practices nationwide to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to advancing quality and patient-centered healthcare,” says Heidi Camardello, vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer.

Dolgeville Primary Care Center is located at 9 Gibson Ave., Dolgeville, NY. Appointments can be scheduled at 315-429-8714. Newport Primary Care Center is located at 3085 Bridge Street, Newport, NY. Appointments can be scheduled at 315-845-6100.
