Your Primary Care Provider (PCP) will coordinate all routine care for you and your family, and arrange for specialty care, if needed. Your primary care provider will also arrange for hospital care if necessary.
Primary Care at Lynn Community Health Center includes several categories:
- Family Medicine providers care for individuals at all stages of life, from birth through adulthood.
- Internal Medicine providers specialize in the care and treatment of adults.
- Pediatrics providers specialize in the care of infants, children, and adolescents.
- Women’s Health providers provide routine screening and testing in addition to ob/gyn care when necessary.
- Geriatric Care includes comprehensive care programs for seniors.
- School-Based Health Centers provide on-site primary and behavioral health care for students at school.
Unless it is an emergency, you should always call your PCP first when you or your family member gets sick.
Lynn Community Health Center is committed to creating a Patient Centered Medical Home for you. A medical home is not a building, house, or hospital, but rather an approach to providing comprehensive health care. A medical home is called a “home” because we’d like to be the first place you think of for all your medical needs. Our goal is to make it easy and comfortable to get the care you need in a way that works best for you.
Your medical home team consists of your primary care provider, a dedicated team of health care professionals, and most importantly, you and your family. As a crucial member of the team, you will be involved in decisions about your health and health care. Your primary care provider will work with you to coordinate your care across the health care system.
Lynn Community Health Center has placed special emphasis on the coordination of primary care and behavioral health services for those who need them. Our premise is that Behavioral Health is more than the control or absence of mental illness or substance abuse — and that Primary Care is more than the control or absence of physical illness. Our vision is to promote and support optimally effective and productive mental and physical functioning in all of our patients.
To this end, each one of our primary care teams has behavioral health providers who practice on the team alongside their medical counterparts. Your providers work together to ensure that you get the best care possible.
