Primary Care

Primary care is provided through an intergrated service model by an interdisciplinary team of care providers across four facilities: Highland Hospital, Eastmont, Newark and Hayward at Winton Wellness Centers. Primary care focuses on you, the patient. That means our patient-centered care is responsive to patient and family needs, preferences, culture, and values. Our goal is to ensure that the patient’s values guide health-care decisions.

We provide thoughtful care, when and how it is needed. We keep you healthy and we help you get better when you are sick. We help you manage your conditions more effectively.

And we’ve got a host of ways to accomplish that:

  • Personalized, individual care for chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and arthritis
  • Hospital follow-up care
  • Care of acute illnesses such as infections and sprains
  • Preventive health care
  • Patient education and support for self-management of chronic conditions, with a staff that includes a nutritionist, certified diabetes educator, clinical pharmacists and health coaches
  • Behavioral health services that include individual and group meetings provided by a psychiatrist, licensed clinical social worker, medical social worker, and health coaches
  • Support for complex medical conditions with a nurse care manager
  • Linkage to specialty services and hospital care as needed
  • Chronic disease management and geriatrics
  • Immunizations and TB tests
  • Health coaching for weight loss, good diet, and regular medication-taking
  • A residency training program in adult medicine that attracts high-quality doctors and teachers
  • A panel management program that provides doctors and staff with reminders for immunizations, cancer screening, and other tests
  • Team-style organization of providers, medical assistants, and registration clerks who work together to provide excellent care
