our vision

Our vision is to be a model primary care office, in which patients receive quality care individualized for their personal healthcare needs. Each patient will be treated respectfully and given the time and opportunity to ask questions and fully understand the treatment plans and goals they are trying to attain. Patients will be educated about routine screenings and preventive health services. This will allow patients to be involved in clinical decision about their health care and encourage them to take responsibility for health life choices through medical care, education and community programs.

ABOUT US

Island Health and Wellness Center will be a nonprofit organization primarily funded by private grants, foundations and individuals. It will be governed by a Board of Directors using the needs of the community of St. John as a guide.

PATIENT CARE CONCEPT

Island Health and Wellness Center will be based on the concept that every person has the right to quality, affordable and accessible health care. Patients will be treated compassionately and on a personal and individualized level. The benefits of this concept will include longer visits with healthcare providers, variable available hours for appointments, and access to educational and supportive medical resources. This should lead to trusting relationships between patients and providers, patient advocacy and involvement regarding decisions in their care, less patient confusion, higher medical adherence rates, more confidence in the medical care practiced and a healthier community.


Island Health and Wellness will utilize a team of trained medical and administrative staff, up to date and appropriate equipment and a referral system to other medical offices and facilities in the area in order to maximize care for each patient.
