You face some kind of health care issue nearly every day. That’s why having one doctor to help you manage you and your family’s care and treatment is the first step to better health.
At Day Kimball Healthcare, establishing an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider (PCP) for everyone in your family puts you at the center of your medical team. PCPs do more than treat you when you’re sick — they also keep you well and help you prevent illnesses, which improves your quality of life and reduces your health care costs. Your PCP offers preventive care, helps you manage your health, and refers you to other medical specialists if needed.
Our primary care providers work as advocates for your health, integrating their own expertise with that of our specialty care providers and
other health experts to proactively help you access the care you need. Our Primary Care practice locations are your homes for patient centered care. We offer in-person and virtual health visits at six locations conveniently located throughout the Northeast Connecticut region.
Acute care visits: Our Day Kimball Medical Group primary care practices are there for you with acute care appointments for minor illnesses or injuries, providing you with convenience, improved continuity of care, and savings over visiting an urgent care center.

Our Primary Care practice locations are your homes for patient centered care. We’re in pursuit of developing a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) approach to health care. In this model, the PCP serves as your health care advocate, coordinating all aspects of your care throughout our system.
Patient-centered medical homes (PCMH) are transforming how primary care is organized and delivered. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) defines a medical home not simply as a place, but as a model of the organization of primary care that delivers the core functions of primary health care. The medical home encompasses five functions and attributes:
Family medicine practitioners provide continuing, comprehensive healthcare for individuals of all ages (from infancy to elderly) and both genders, as well as care for each organ system and every disease entity. As the name implies, family medicine physicians can also provide care to all members of a family, offering continuity of care within the household. Some family medicine practitioners also provide obstetrical care for women.
Internal medicine practitioners provide adults 18 years of age or older (or as young as 16 in some practices) with comprehensive care, including sick and well care visits, preventive care, women’s health services, minor office procedures, and work-related physicals.
Pediatricians provide comprehensive care for children from birth through adolescence and into young adulthood. Services include sick and well care visits, physicals, immunizations, school and camp physicals, and specialized services including the evaluation and treatment of asthma, ADD/ADHD and adolescent medicine.
