Providing care for the whole person, body, mind and spirit. The Primary Care practice is designed to furnish the residents of the Telluride Hospital District with a full spectrum of health care services across the lifespan.
Patient Centered Medical Home
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has named the Telluride Regional Medical Center as a recipient of the NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, participative relationships.
The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs.
Medical homes, like the Telluride Regional Medical Center, foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as the sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the health care system.
The Telluride Regional Medical Center achieved Level III certification, the highest recognition offered.
