A Neighborhood Health Station (NHS) is a new primary care model that focuses on building community while tailoring its healthcare delivery to the neighborhood it serves. We start with one of Rhode Island’s great community health centers or large primary care practices, and add to it expanded staff and facilities to promote health, as well as a community organization that can advocate for the health of individuals and families. The NHS aims to improve population health through building upon features of successful patient-centered medical homes, and additionally linking social services it provides to the needs of the community. It would be funded through a Primary Care Trust that would consolidate primary care dollars based on individuals’ insurance premiums. We seek to implement an NHS for every 10,000 to 15,000 RI residents based on community-based health assessments. NHS offers a vehicle for providing local advocacy and improving the health of the community.
