I want to pass along my heartfelt thanks to all those who had a hand in transforming our flagship clinical facility into what it is today - Philadelphia's leading eye care facility. This extensive undertaking is totally aligned with our long-standing commitment to our mission to provide competent, comprehensive and patient-centered vision care to all who seek services, while at the same time, providing the highest quality clinical education to optometric trainees and the community it serves. The excellent quality of care patients experience is now enhanced by a beautifully designed modern clinical space.
This newly designed facility also provides us with a wonderful opportunity to integrate a Patient Centered Medical Home into our practice sometime in the future. As we continue to mature as one of the nation's leading Health Science Professions Universities we have the responsibility to continue to evolve our healthcare delivery model to meet the demands of a very fluid healthcare delivery environment. This must include weaving primary care directly into our current delivery model. As I've stated in previous blogs, I believe a Patient Centered Medical Home model provides a cost-effective way to deliver high quality, essential care to the community we service directly in Oak Lane but also an opportunity to model this for other locations. Have a great weekend!
