Carol T. Lewis Professor of Pediatrics, Clinician Educator

Carol Lewis is a general pediatrician at Hasbro Children’s Hospital (HCH).  HCH Pediatric Primary Care provides healthcare for 10,000 low-income children. It is also the primary care site for pediatric residents and Alpert Medical School students. Dr. Lewis provides direct patient care as well as education and supervision of trainees.

 

Carol Lewis is Medical Director of HCH Primary Care. She is also founder and director of the HCH Refugee Health Program and co-founder of HCH Fostering Health Program. Both programs provide timely access to primary care for a group of patients who have increased health burden, but also have increased barriers to health care. The programs focus on care coordination and patient centered care.

 

Dr. Lewis also leads the Patient Centered Medical Home-Kids (PCMH-Kids) initiative, which is a transformation of health care delivery for the entire HCH pediatric primary care. This is a team based and comprehensive approach to the management of not only medical care but also mental health care and the socioeconomic challenges as well. Institutions with this status are recognized as those that deliver high quality care, lower costs, improved patient experience and better health outcomes.
