Health Care Home
The Health Care Home Project serves adults that are actively receiving behavioral health services at Milestone by providing physical wellness initiatives.
- Milestone collaborates with Squirrel Hill Health Center to bring primary health care services to Milestone’s clients. A Squirrel Hill Health Center physician provides health care via a mobile medical unit that visits Milestone’s Wilkinsburg and Penn Center locations.
- The project goals are to make health care more accessible and demonstrate that early prevention and intervention will reduce the occurrence of serious physical illness.
