Primary Care

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF CARE – Patient-Centered Medical Home

As a Patient-Centered Medical Home, the Liberty Resources Family Health Center believes that all people deserve high quality medical care that is easily accessible and coordinated across all elements of the broader health system. We treat patients with respect and dignity and understand that our backgrounds are varied, cultures are diverse, levels of education are different, but that our health concerns matter equally.

 We believe in the fundamentals of primary care: prevention, early detection, and timely treatment of acute illness. We treat the person as a whole and integrate treatment of mind and body under one seamless care team through close collaboration with the onsite, integrated Behavioral Health Center and Genoa Pharmacy.
