We thank our partners who help make ADMH a success:
UFPA is the location of all ADMH clinics and shares our commitment to provide comprehensive and sensitive care to individuals with disabilities and other health needs. Patients have the opportunity to make UFPA their primary care physician and their medical home or attend the ADMH and remain with their own primary care physician. The physicians at UFPA are now participating on the ADMH and serving our patients.
