Adult Primary Care
Amoskeag Health provides comprehensive, team-based primary, integrated (physical and behavioral) care focused on quality and safety. Patient Centered Medical Home is a model for achieving primary care excellence by providing care in partnership with patients and their families to ensure decisions respect patients’ wants, needs and preferences and that patients have the education and support they need to make decisions and participate in their own care.
Pediatric care is offered at all Amoskeag Health locations. Pediatric care is focused on the whole child (newborn to 20 years old) for their wellness care, immunizations, and development of physical and emotional growth.
At Amoskeag Health, Prenatal Care is a group effort that involves initial screenings by a team that includes social workers, counselors, nutritionists, and prenatal nurses. All prenatal patients are seen primarily by a Nurse Midwife but have the opportunity to meet with all of the medical providers on the prenatal care team. Patients who are considered high risk are seen at our Tarrytown location by an Obstetrician from the Bedford Commons OB/GYN group. If a patient delivers vaginally, then one of our family practice physicians or our nurse-midwife attends the delivery at Elliot Hospital. If a patient requires a C-section or abdominal delivery, a Bedford Commons Obstetrician performs that surgery at Elliot Hospital.
Adolescent care is offered at all Amoskeag Health locations. It is focused on the unique health situations for patients between 12 and 20 years old including screenings for depression and anxiety, substance use screenings, information and guidance about appropriate diet and exercise as well as ensuring that immunizations are up to date. Based at The Dr. Selma Deitch Center for Children & Teens, adolescent care offers a full range of primary care services including confidential reproductive health services with counseling for sexual orientation and identity, pregnancy testing, and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Amoskeag Health offers Gynecologic Care for healthy female reproductive systems including pap smears, breast exams, STD and STI testing and treatment, and pregnancy testing at all locations. Amoskeag Health offers colposcopy (cervical examination) and LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedures) at our 145 Hollis Street location.
