will be granted annually to the Family Physician or Physician Practice Group that best
embodies the principles of ‘The Patient’s Medical Home.’
The Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) is a family practice defined by its patients as the place
that they feel most comfortable (most at ‘home’) to present and discuss their personal and
family health and medical concerns. Patients can be confident that their health care needs
will be met through their Medical Home and know that their Family Physician is the “go to
person” for their health care needs.
