Mile Square Health Center Primary and Pediatric Care

What is Primary Care?

Primary care provides accessible healthcare services by physicians and advanced practice providers, including physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Our healthcare teams address personal healthcare needs, develop ongoing partnerships with patients, and practice in the context of family and community.

Our care is person-centered, team-based, community-aligned, and designed to achieve better health, improved care, and lower costs. Primary care providers specialize in meeting a wide range of physical and emotional health needs.

Our healthcare team also has pediatricians and advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) providers, who address the unique concerns of children from birth to young adulthood.

Both specialties focus on preventative health, including how to lead a healthy lifestyle and promote overall health and wellness. Primary and pediatric care providers also diagnose and treat a variety of issues, including temporary conditions, like the flu and a sprained ankle, and chronic (ongoing) conditions, like asthma and diabetes.

In addition to meeting your family’s physical needs, primary and pediatric care providers support healthy emotional development from childhood through adulthood. They can screen for, diagnose, and, in some cases, manage mental health concerns, like anxiety and depression.
