Lovelace Health System is cutting a ceremonial ribbon on its new Health Care Center at 10 a.m. today. The center opened March 3. The center, at 9501 Paseo Del Norte NE, offers what Lovelace called “a patient-centered medical home model” of care. “This model organizes care around the patient, allowing clinical teams to better coordinate and track care,” said John Cruickshank, CEO of Lovelace Medical Group. “The clinic provides a central medical home for the patient instead of focusing solely on providing episodic care.” The clinic, which operates from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, offers same-day and next-day access, focuses heavily on preventive care, and works closely with other providers like pharmacists and dieticians to ensure that all aspects of care are addressed through the medical home. The health care center will offer comprehensive services for adults including routine health screenings, chronic and acute illness management, preventive care and education, immunizations, common illness assessment, diabetes counseling, behavioral health and referrals to specialists. Lovelace Pharmacy will be located at the clinic.
