The Center of Excellence model is not new to the care of diseases ranging from cancer to cystic fibrosis. The approach is simple: work with leading medical colleges and teaching hospitals throughout the country to offer elite multidisciplinary care. As such, the FCSA is currently working with several leading hospitals throughout the country to develop the standards of care model that will be utilized to care for those living with fibromyalgia. The FCSA will launch its Center of Excellence Program with a dedicated facility that will offer training and coordinated care to individuals across the country. This facility will be the model replicated throughout the country in subsequent years. At an FCSA Center of Excellence you can expect to find a team of medical and care professionals who have the most up-to-date education on the care of fibromyalgia. The care team will include nutritionists; holistic care management, physical therapy, mental health support and additional services. Most importantly, individuals who are underinsured or have no insurance will be able to receive care and support regardless of their financial capabilities.
At these world-class facilities, patients benefit from expert neurologists, mental health specialists, therapists, counselors and other professionals who have deep experience working with families affected by fibromyalgia and who work collaboratively to help families plan the best fibromyalgia care program.
