About Us > Innovative Care Models > Care Connections
Care Connections is a community care team providing an innovative, intensive, and temporary primary care medical home for high-risk patients. We strive to meet the needs of individuals who have been admitted to the hospital multiple times because of a combination of behavioral health and three or more medical challenges.
The care team includes physicians, advanced practice providers, patient care navigators, social workers, care management nurses, a behavioral health psychologist, a clinical pharmacist, a chaplain, and a medical-legal attorney.
