Zika Virus

Zika is a flavivirus related to dengue, West Nile, yellow fever and Japanese encephalitis. Infection with Zika virus is usually mild. About one in five people develop symptoms; but hospitalization is rare. If someone is going to have symptoms, they usually start between 2-7 days following the bite of an infected mosquito and commonly include: acute onset of fever, a red rash with small bumps, joint pain, or pink eye. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, pain behind the eyes, and vomiting. If present, symptoms typically last several days to a week. A Zika virus hotline is available Monday – Friday, 9am – 6pm at (888) 364-4723. Learn More.

Ryan Receives Accreditation as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home

The Ryan Network has received accreditation as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA). The NCQA is a nationally recognized organization that is most widely used to transform primary care practices into medical homes.

Medical homes can lead to higher quality of care and lower costs, while improving the experience of patients and providers. To achieve the highest level of recognition, we demonstrated that we offer coordinated and comprehensive care. Improving access through expanded hours, including patients as partners in decisions about their health care, and preventing health problems are just a few of the keys to becoming a patient-centered medical home.
