Every primary care clinic at Naval Hospital Jacksonville -- its hospital and five branch health clinics -- has earned Patient Centered Medical Home recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).  NCQA's recognition programs are built on evidence-based, nationally recognized clinical standards of care. 
 
Patients with a primary care manager (PCM) at our hospital or a branch health clinic belong to a primary care team -- as part of Medical Home Port.  It places you at the center of a collaborative team of caregivers -- from doctors and nurses to case managers.  Led by your PCM, your team focuses on your comprehensive health care needs -- urgent, preventive and routine.
 
Medical Home Port is about building the patient/provider relationship, enhancing communication, meeting your urgent care needs within the team, coordinating a full spectrum of services (including prevention and behavioral health), using evidence-based medicine, and enhancing your health through wellness activities and support for self-care.
 
RelayHealth offers secure email to connect you to your PCM at no cost. Sign up at www.RelayHealth.com.
