Community Medicine is in Fayette County!
Community Medicine fills the gaps between the hospital and home. The Community Network Team links at-risk and vulnerable populations with needed services using a team-based approach.
Plan of Safe Care
Pennsylvania's Act 54 established mandated reporting guidelines for infants born affected by substances used during pregnancy.
The law states that a Plan of Safe Care must be written by a multidisciplinary team to meet the needs of the parent and child.
Refer a parent and child at https://www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home. This is not the same as a Children and Youth Services Report, though the portal is the same.
We are excited to announce that we have joined with Fayette County Children and Youth, Drug and Alcohol, Behavioral Health, Adult Probation, Uniontown Hospital, Health Choices, Laurel Pediatrics, Cherry Tree Pediatrics, Adagio Health, Nurse Family Partnership, Gateway Health, Headstart, Fayette County Problem Solving Court and UPMC to create and a multidisciplinary team that evaluates each case and develops an individualized Safe Plan of Care.
Substance Abuse Disorder (CAS Team)
Through our partnership with Fayette County Drug and Alcohol, with funding provided by the Department of Drug and Alcohol Problems (DDAP), we attempt to connect those struggling with substance abuse disorder with treatment options and support resources. Our Community Medicine Specialists respond to 911 calls, hospitals, and homes to reach out and connect with those that need our help most.
