PHS is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care in a patient-centered environment. Our medical team and support staff are committed to treating you with courtesy, compassion, and respect. The focus of our primary care services is to maintain health through routine appointments, wellness education, immunizations, and referrals to other medical specialists if appropriate. Additionally, primary care provides individual interventions to those who are having difficulty with adhering to medications.
PHS has a team of ten Medical Case Managers to coordinate client-centered services that reduced barriers to significant engagement in care. To do so, they complete a comprehensive assessment and care plan for services and referrals. With this intensive service, it is our hope that medical care and treatments are more easily accessible to clients, that clients are able to successfully engage in their own health care, and that those who face challenges are retained in services long term.
Positive mental health is important for all individuals at every stage of life. PHS has a licensed mental health counselor available for individual, couples, and family therapy sessions.
