Under One Roof: Primary Care Models that Work for Adolescents

Incenter Strategies/MCH Policy Research Center

This report describes an interdisciplinary model of physical, behavioral and reproductive health care operating in a hospital-based adolescent medicine clinic, a private practice and a federally qualified community health center. Those three locations – Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center (New York City), Wake Teen Medical Services (Raleigh, N.C.), and Erie Teen Health Center (Chicago) – meet the unique needs of adolescents, using multidisciplinary staffing, team-based approaches, staff sensitivity, teen-friendly environments and a focus on positive youth development.

The report also describes the funding challenges associated with providing integrated care and the strategies the three programs used to obtain financial support. Incenter Strategies, an affiliate of the Maternal and Child Health Policy Research Center, provides education, research, policy analysis and technical assistance on the structure and financing of adolescent health care.
