"Every child and youth deserves a medical home."

Calvin CJ Sia, MD, FAAP

Welcome to the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home, a national technical assistance center focused on improving the health and well-being of, and strengthening the system of services for, children and youth with special health care needs and their families by enhancing the patient/family-centered medical home.

A medical home is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care that facilitates partnerships between patients, clinicians, medical staff, and families. A medical home extends beyond the four walls of a clinical practice. It includes specialty care, educational services, family support and more.

This Web site provides tools, resources, state specific information, and promising practices in patient/family-centered medical home implementation.


The National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $4,100,000 with no funding from nongovernmental sources.
