Medical Home

A medical home is a team approach to providing health care. As your child’s medical home, we are a central resource for their health and wellness.

How it works:

  • Your child’s primary care doctor or nurse leads a care team dedicated to them. This team may include nurses, specialists, counselors and other professionals.
  • We organize your child’s complete health record including lab results, visits to specialists and hospital stays so nothing is overlooked.
  • You have access to you child’s complete health record online through MyChart. Ask your doctor how to sign up.

ZING! PROGRAM
Zing! at Pen Bay Pediatrics: 207-593-5639
Zing! at Waldoboro Family Medicine: 207-832-5291

Zing! is a positive, encouraging program that helps children and their families learn healthy habits. We work with children ages 6-18 who have been referred by their doctor’s office because of weight and health concerns.

How it works:
  • We will work with you and your child to set goals and create a plan to help them be successful.
  • The Zing! team is lead by a Pediatrician and a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Other members of the team may include a registered dietitian, physical therapist, behavioral health specialist and other professionals. Each of these specialists will help you & your child set realistic, achievable goals.
  • You will have regular meetings with your child’s provider to talk about the program and see how your child is doing. We offer a variety of fun activities like cooking classes, group exercises and field trips!
  • Zing! providers teach how the “5-2-1-0″ message makes it easy to make healthy choices.
