Patient Center Medical Home Plans

The Eye Institute (TEI) of Salus University/PCO has partnered with CityLife Neighborhood Clinics/Ampersand Health, LLC to create a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) within TEI’s Philadelphia clinic. Occupying a space of approximately 8,100 square feet, the University was approved for a $1 million grant from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The academic program expansion at Salus has included audiology, physician assistant, public health, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology, all requiring a clinical practicum. Opening this spring, the PCMH will effectively bring necessary primary care services to a medically underserved community, while providing a clinical setting for all of Salus’ professional students to train and work in an inter-professional, multidisciplinary and integrated care setting.
