medicine pediatrics primary care center

The Medicine Pediatrics Primary Care Center (MPPCC) was founded in 1998 as a dedicated ambulatory continuity experience. Originally located in the Physicians Office Building on the Rhode Island Hospital campus, the clinic relocated in 2013 to new space in the Washington Park community, 1 mile from the hospital. The shared model practice uses a multidisciplinary approach to care. The dedicated staff, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and medical assistants, works cooperatively to care for our patients. The site offers comprehensive primary care, including preventive care, chronic disease management, and acute care.  We co-locate services for behavioral health, diabetes education, HIV care, long-acting contraception, pediatric hematology/oncology survivorship, and a refugee resettlement clinic. In 2014, almost 9,000 patients of all ages were seen at the clinic, representing a diversity of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. The MPPCC has been recognized as a NCQA-Level III Patient-Centered Medical Home since 2017.
