CEO Column

Ralph-MullerAs a staff member, you see Penn Medicine’s quality, dedication, and compassion on a daily basis. Now, a new program makes it easier for you and your family to gain quick, convenient access to the same outstanding care as well.

The Penn Primary Care Connection offers Penn Medicine employees and their families a direct line for scheduling new appointments with a primary care provider from our CCA and CPUP practices. Penn primary care physicians and health care providers such as nurse practitioners offer outstanding, personalized care for patients of all ages. Our primary care practices include family medicine, internal medicine, adolescent medicine, and PennCare for Kids.

A regular relationship with a member of the Penn primary care team can help prevent health problems and introduce you and your family to healthy habits.

There are other benefits as well. By using the Penn Primary Care network, you’ll have significantly lower co-pay costs than with other in-network providers. Penn primary care providers are available at more than 30 locations throughout the region, so you can conveniently schedule your appointment near work or home. And if you do need a specialist, you’ll be directed to the most advanced treatment options and experts in a wide range of fields -- all dedicated to keeping you healthy.

When you make the Penn Primary Care Connection, you’ll have access to myPennMedicine, the region’s only patient-accessible, online health record system. It provides immediate easy and secure digital access to the personal health information you need most: lab results, referrals, refills, and appointments. Additionally, you can link directly into our health information library. Simply clicking on a diagnosis or medication leads to authoritative information on that topic. Password-protected, myPennMedicine is secure, confidential, and available around the clock -- you just need an Internet connection.

You can request a first-time appointment with a Penn Medicine primary care provider or find one by calling 267-414-2208 or click here.

We’re committed to doing all we can to improving your health and well-being -- after all, you’re a valued member of the Penn Medicine family.
