Arlington Pediatric Center Earns National Recognition for Patient-Centered Care | Virginia Hospital Center is proud to announce that Arlington Pediatric Center (APC) has again received the National Committee on Quality Assurance's (NCQA) Level III Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition, its highest level of recognition.

"The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition raises the bar in defining high-quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients," said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane. "This recognition demonstrates that Arlington Pediatric Center has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care at the right time."

"Every child deserves quality medical care"

Mission & Vision

APC’s mission is to provide a Medical Home offering family-centered care in a culturally-sensitive environment for children birth through 18 years of age, living in Arlington County with family incomes below the Federal Poverty Level. Located in a convenient, accessible location in South Arlington, APC features a full-time staff including: pediatricians, nurses, care coordinators, case managers and a social worker.

Patients are seen by appointment 6 days per week and physicians are available on-call 24/7.

Why Give

The long term impact of any health care intervention – or lack thereof – is greatest during childhood and adolescence. The provision of quality health care is increasingly more expensive.

APC’s annual budget of $2 million with only a portion funded by reimbursements. The remainder of the budget must be covered by contributions. The cost is great, but the positive outcomes are far greater.
