Need a Provider?

Having a Primary Care Provider can give you a trusting, ongoing relationship with one or more medical professionals. You may encounter several different types of Primary Care Providers:

  • Family Medicine: Doctors who have completed a family practice residency and are board-certified, or board-eligible, for this specialty. The scope of their practice includes children and adults of all ages and may include obstetrics and minor surgery.
  • Internal Medicine: Doctors who have completed a residency in internal medicine and are board-certified, or board-eligible, in this specialty. The scope of their practice includes the care of adults of all ages for many different medical problems.
  • Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA): Practitioners who go through a different training and certification process than doctors. They may be your PCP in some practices.

The Care Coordination Programs at Knox Community Hospital aim to ensure that patient concerns, needs and preferences for health services are met.

These teams also ensure that information which is shared across various channels, functions or sites of care. Care Coordination works with families and caregivers to track, aid and assess the best possible plan of care for those in transitional or chronic care conditions.
