How Our Care Teams Work

HUHS provides patients with comprehensive, coordinated health care through a primary care team that includes a primary care physician (PCP), nurse practitioner, registered nurses, and health assistants. Our teams work closely with patients to provide high-quality outpatient health care services in a friendly, comfortable environment.


  • Primary care physicians (PCP) are board certified or board-eligible in internal medicine or family practice, with specific interests in student health issues and preventive health care.
  • Nurse practitioners (NP) hold advanced degrees and are board certified in family or adult medicine. NPs are trained to evaluate and treat many acute and common conditions, as well as provide patient education and preventive care.
  • Registered nurses (RN) provide initial assessment for medical problems, help to facilitate appointments, provide routine immunizations, and offer advice on common health concerns and questions.
  • Health assistants support the primary care physician or nurse practitioner during exams and assist with referrals and scheduling appointments.
Please note that you may change your PCP at anytime. Those with pre-existing conditions are advised to provide copies of medical records and to make contact with their primary care team in order to establish a relationship prior to any urgent medical needs.


HUHS strives to clearly and thoroughly communicate with all patients and their families about the care we provide. Interpreter services are available for non-English speaking patients. Other services are available for patients who are hearing or visually impaired.
