Family And Community Health Services
The Healthcare mission is to change the paradigm of health services to a group care model in order to improve the over all health outcomes of mothers, babies, new families, and all individuals accross the life cycle.
Women spend more time with their health care provider, and with other pregnant women, which gives them a chance to learn a lot more about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. Checkups, support, and education all take place in a group setting.
