King’s Daughters Family Care Center in Grayson has earned national recognition for patient-centered care and was recently designated a Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. 

Standards for the recognition are aligned with principles established by the NCQU, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Osteopathic Association and include: 

  • Use of evidence-based patient-centered processes
  • Providing highly coordinated care and maintaining long-term participative relationships between the patient, the provider and health system
  • Providing open scheduling and expanded hours
  • Appropriately using proven health information system technology 

“Our goal is to transform our primary care into what patients want it to be,” said Lori Baier, clinical supervisor. “We don’t treat patient care as the sum of several episodic office visits. Our patients have input with their providers, and we work as a team to coordinate their treatment throughout King’s Daughters Health System.” 

“The Patient Centered Medical Home raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and partnership between clinicians and patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “PCMH recognition shows that King’s Daughters Family Care Center in Grayson has the tools, systems and resources to provide their patients with the right care at the right time.” 

King’s Daughters Family Care Center is located at 609 N. Carol Malone Blvd. in Grayson. Providers are: Dara Stepp, DO; Katrina Barker, APRN, Brandi Manning, PA-C, and patient case coordinator Paul Barker, RN. Services include:
