We Are Very Excited to Announce …

Anderson Hills Pediatrics is very excited to announce that we have recently received our certification as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) through the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)! This is a rigorous 18-month process to improve our practice to provide even better and more cost-effective care for our patients. What does this mean for you? It means:

• AHP acts as the hub or “home” for all your child’s medical needs – we are your first call  or visit when your child needs care or treatment. We will also assist you when it is necessary to refer your child to a specialist or other resources for treatment. This helps to avoid unnecessary or duplicated tests/labs/procedures and save you money.

• Engaging you and your child in a partnership in caring for your child and making their care and treatment fit their personal needs as much as possible.

• Providing the best and up-to date treatment possible for your child based on guidelines and protocols from the American Academy of Pediatrics and other highly respected resources.

Caring for your child is the most important goal of AHP’s Patient-Centered Medical Home. The entire medical home team (the doctors, nurses, and office support staff) are here to work together with you to help your child get healthy, stay healthy, and receive the care that is best for them.

Sports Injury Appointments Now Available at AHP

Beginning in May, appointments for sports-related injuries and musculoskeletal issues are available with Dr. Pamela Lachniet. Dr. Lachniet has completed Fellowship training with a Certificate of Added Qualification in Primary Care Sports Medicine at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

AHP will also be stocking medical products at both of our locations, such as crutches, splints, braces, and walking boots to care for and treat many of these injuries, saving our patients an extra trip to another facility.

Certified Lactation Consultants

Anderson Hills Pediatrics now has two international board-certified Lactation Consultants, Amy and Darla, to assist our breastfeeding babies and moms. We are one of the few pediatric practices in the area that provide this service. Amy and Darla are available, either on the phone or in the office, Monday through Friday, and are very happy to answer questions and help with your breastfeeding concerns. They work closely with your child’s primary care doctor to ensure your baby is growing and developing in the healthiest way possible. You may reach them by calling our office at 513.232.8100.
