Health Home Care Coordination
Health Home Care Coordination is not a place, but rather a concept of helping clients live their version of their healthiest lives. In this model of care, a Care Coordinator will work with clients to help build independence by setting goals to live a healthier life. Care Coordinators meet clients where they are comfortable whether this be at their home, in the community or at an office. Serving St. Lawrence and Jefferson County, Care Coordination is a wonderful place to build a career in the Behavioral Health field. If you are interested in joining our team, please reach out to our front office at 315-393-0730 ext. 2121 to get more information about the program. If you are a provider and think Care Coordination services would benefit a patient, please reach out to our front office at 315-393-0730 ext. 2121.

Bringing care together
A health home isn’t a place, it’s a service designed to ensure all those involved in an individual’s care are working together and sharing the necessary information in supporting a person’s recovery. Health Home Care Coordinators help align not just medical, mental health, and substance abuse services, but the social service needs of the individual as well.
