Medical Home for Children
Henry Ford Pediatrics provides a Medical Home for Children to support families with children facing chronic diseases such as diabetes or developmental and physical disabilities. A Medical Home is not a building. It is a way to provide high-quality, family-centered care to promote good health, care for minor illnesses and manage chronic conditions.
- Identify children who may be at risk of a chronic disease such as asthma and diabetes, and provide ongoing medical management to prevent any complications.
- Identify children with developmental disabilities, and provide ongoing medical management to prevent secondary medical conditions.
- Promote healthy lifestyles for children with disabilities.
