Six of Hennepin County Medical Center’s primary care clinics are now certified as health care homes.

Locally, the concept of Health Care Homes was introduced as part of Minnesota’s health reform legislation in 2008, and they are also part of a national initiative to ultimately improve the health of the population, the patient/consumer experience, and the affordability of health care.
