Welcome to Your Patient-Centered Medical Home

MidValley Family Practice was recognized as a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) in February 2013. This prestigious honor has only been awarded to the practices in the United States who have demonstrated the highest level of quality care. Attaining this recognition required over 2 years of preparing the PCMH application, collecting data, changing office protocols, and technology upgrades. We are proud to be one of only 2 (Mountain Family Health Center) recognized practices in the Roaring Fork Valley.

Patient-Centered is a way of saying that you, the patient, are at the center of your healthcare team. Your healthcare team includes you, your healthcare providers, and their support staff. 

Medical Home is here, at your primary care provider’s office. I your Medical Home you are part of a team that will provide comprehensive, coordinated primary care that promotes partnerships between you, your healthcare team, and your family.

  • Work with you to improve your health – we will be proactive rather than reactive
  • Review your medications at every visit
