Medical care, in the most basic terms, is the care and maintenance of the physical aspects of your body. However, it is just not that simple. In this day and age we know that there are a multitude of factors which impact and influence our physical health including environment, genetics, lifestyle, social factors and mental health. Additionally, we are in an era of medicine that is rapidly evolving with new and innovative care recommendations always on the horizon.
To navigate through all the factors that influence our health and the options we have to care for ourselves, it requires a coordinated effort. The medical home embraces this concept. Essentially, you establish a primary care provider who can be a ‘home-base’ from which you can make informed, practical and cost conscience decision about how to care for yourself and family. Grand County offers a diverse and readily accessible group of primary care providers to choose from.
