Inspired Passionate Care

We strive to improve the lives of our patients and their loved ones through passionate, integrated care.
Holistic, evidence-based medicine in combination with appropriate behavioral health support is how we inspire healthy change.

We know that communication is critical to providing the best care possible. We see each patient as a unique individual and the patient’s illness as only a part of that person; the illness does not define the patient.

ABOUT US

Our different approach to primary care provides the best outcomes for our patients. We assign a Care Coordinator to each patient who is dedicated to help with medical education, improved provider interaction, direct communication with our staff, patient support and referrals and resource coordination.

Our Story

Alium Health was conceived in 2015 and launched in 2017. It is an integrated family practice group that places mothers at the forefront of its care model. By caring for mothers in all stages, Alium looks to build connections that last a lifetime.

Focusing on women experiencing behavioral health complications during and after pregnancy has helped an underserved population. We hope mothers will enjoy and benefit from their experience at Alium Health and quickly bring the rest of their family in for any needed services.
