The Comprehensive Care Program (CCP) at Boston Medical Center is a primary care pediatric program supporting families of children with chronic medical conditions, developmental disabilities and complex issues. Our patients also include “NICU graduates” – babies born prematurely (preemies).
We are a team of clinicians working to enhance the quality of health services and social support for these children and their families. We are 3 primary care doctors with an interest in children with special health care needs and medical complexity. We have a consistent nurse, navigator and care management to help us help you. We take our own call so you will reach one of the 3 of us when you need our attention. CCP is an integral part of primary care pediatrics at BMC where exceptional care is provided, without exception.
The Comprehensive Care Program is guided by the following principles:
- All parents need a “medical home” to bring their child to for health care that can address their many needs.
- The family is recognized as the principal caregiver who provides strength and support for their child and .
- CCP as the medical home enhances a child’s health care and helps connect families to different supports.
- The medical home must serve to coordinate all of the input and opinions from the many nursing and medical providers, specialists and school personnel into a coherent story.
- This medical home should meet all the child’s health care and developmental needs.
- Families will have continuity with deserve ready access to their 3 known primary care medical providers and team, not to a stranger, especially when their child is ill.
The Comprehensive Care Program provides “one-stop shopping” for health care for families who need it the most. We make every efforts to schedule visits with many all of the specialists you may need to see on the same day when we can. at the time of your visit. We know the families of children with complex medical needs are juggling many demands and that your time is valuable.
Accordingly, we try to minimize the need for multiple visits to the hospital. This may be especially helpful for families who have difficulty arranging transportation to the hospital, who have other children to care for or whose work or family schedule make it hard for them to make repeated visits.
