Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

"Navigating the health care system can be difficult and confusing when patients are trying to make important personal decisions about their health. I enjoy working at HCMC in the Positive Care Center because we are devoted to working collaboratively with our patients in making informed and educated health decisions."
