Primary Care clinic provides comprehensive holistic clinical services to Cherokee people of all ages.  Health care is delivered in a team based setting and includes medical, nursing, pharmacy, nutrition, patient registration and behavioral health care. Care is delivered through an open access model and appointments can be made for same day and long term needs.  We focus on both your same day needs and the best medical practices to ensure a healthy life. 

Cherokee Indian Hospital is recognized as a level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).  Level 3 is the highest level of recognition you can receive in this category and is an innovative program for improving primary care. There are specific sets of standards that must be met to show that your practice is organizing care around the patient, working in teams and coordinating and tracking care over time. Cherokee Indian Hospital sought recognition as a Patient Centered Medical Home in hopes of strengthening the patient-provider relationship by replacing episodic care based around illness and patient complaints with coordinated care and long-term team based relationships.
