For more than 30 years, Partners in Pediatrics has been dedicated to providing quality health care to infants, children and adolescents in central Alabama. The practice was founded in the early 1990s and since has expanded offices and increased our staff to include eight pediatricians. Throughout this growth, we have continued to focus on providing quality health care in a friendly and nurturing environment for our patients and their families.
The mission of Partners in Pediatrics, LLC is to partner with parents for the health of their children by providing comprehensive, patient-centered medical services through the most important years of your child's development. As an individual organization of physicians, we are uniquely prepared to provide the highest degree of care and value for our patients.
As of June 2015, we are pleased to be certified officially as a Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance(NCQA), a non-profit organization that is the national leader in health care quality and improvement. It is an official indication of our understanding of quality medical care that must meet each family's specific needs and dynamics.
"NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients," said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane. "Recognition shows that PARTNERS IN PEDIATRICS has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time."
For our practice, this means we have a team based approach to providing medical care for our patients. Each patient should select a primary care physician, who works with a nurse. By seeing the same care team at every well visit and by speaking to them over the phone regarding important issues, the providers will know children's health history, concerns and needs. In addition, physicians can understand children's strengths; develop a care plan with parents and children when needed.
Our philosophy is shared by all our staff, from physicians to the front desk. We appreciate the trust that our families place in us, and feel privileged to be a part of their children's lives. We strive to remain accessible to families and this is reflected our outlook. We feel that teamwork and collaboration are vital to good patient care.
