There are many factors that go into creating what the healthcare industry calls a “Medical Home.” Essentially, it’s about keeping patients healthy by providing the highest level of proactive and patient-centered medical care. At the heart of that is the Primary Care Practice.
We’re proud to say that HMH’s Family Care Center – Freeman Creek has attained the highest level of Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition with a score of 99 out of 100 points. Click here

never let anything scare him – until he got cancer.
“I was ten feet tall and bulletproof. I was
John Wayne and Sylvester Stallone all rolled into one – until cancer brought me
to my knees,” he said. “That was the most scared and the most lonely I’ve ever
been in my life.”

When twins Logan and Brandon were born at 25 weeks gestation, they weighed two pounds each. Their little arms were so small that their fathers’ wedding band could slide over their hands like a bracelet. Volunteers made clothes for them because regular clothes were enormous on them.
“I didn’t even get to see them,” said the twins’ mother, Sharon Wright, who is also HMH’s Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer. “I don’t remember seeing my babies at all for six days.”
