At St. Peter’s Health, we like to think of our primary care team as your lifelong health and wellness guides.
We’re there for you—and your family—whether you need an annual check-up or ongoing care for a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure.
St. Peter’s Approach to Primary Care
We practice team-based care so that you have the coverage you need, when you need it. Many of our advanced practice providers (APPs)—nurse practitioners and physician assistants—have same day appointments available. Our APPs work closely with our physicians and the rest of your primary care team—so you can rest assured that whomever you see is up-to-date on your care.
Quality Primary Care at St. Peter’s
St. Peter’s Health is proud to be a Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program, in partnership with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.
What does that mean for you? As a CPC+ program, we provide our patients a higher level of team-based care:
- Along with our APPs and physicians, we have pharmacists, dietitians and social workers in our clinics to help patients with more of their physical and mental health needs.
- All of our clinicians work with each other to ensure your care is coordinated and comprehensive.
- For our patients who have additional health needs (such as multiple chronic and serious illnesses), we provide nurse care managers. Your care manager will help you navigate referrals to specialists and go with you to appointments to provide extra support.
