Integrated Services

Medical Clinic – Primary Care

Our clinic is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) and a recognitzed Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). Heartland practices an integrated health care model, which you can learn more about by clicking here.

Funding for Heartland comes from our FQHC designation, grant funding, church and individual support, and fees generated by patients’ financial participation in their own care.

Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Care

Heartland employs a mental health team that includes a psychiatrist, behavioral health consultants, a psychiatric nurse, and supporting clinical staff. We practice an integrated health care model. This means mental health professionals and providers work alongside one another to provide mental and behavioral health screenings, therapy, and associated medications to patients. Often, a behavioral health consultant can visit the patient right in the exam room during their medical visit. Learn more about integrated care by clicking here.
