Care Coordinators at CCHC provide education and support for patients with a multitude of medical diagnoses, such as diabetes, co-morbidities and newly diagnosed conditions. They offer referrals to services unavailable at CCHC and insure access to a primary care provider to fulfill the health center’s role as a patient-centered medical home.
Coordinators work with other facilities and specialists on the referral process for patients needing to see someone other than their primary care provider. Referrals can be made for physical therapy, surgery, pain management, Orthopedic, etc.
Referrals are based on individual patient needs and must be authorized by the primary care provider in order to be made by the Care Coordinators.
