Philadelphia public health clinic draws praise for integrated care

Delivering integrated physical and mental healthcare is a goal of the Affordable Care Act, but Abbottsford Falls Family Practice in the East Falls section of Philadelphia has been practicing integrated care for 20 years, according to a local news profile of the public health clinic. Patients interviewed for the piece spoke highly about the organization and its care model. "You don't come in here, and they write you prescription and you go," patient Rosetta Bell told NewsWorks. "They always want to know what's going on with you, how you are feeling, how your family is doing." Article
