HCCI CEO Honored by ESSE Adult Day Services and Congressman Peter Roskam
Dr. Thomas Cornwell, CEO of the Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI), was honored by ESSE Adult Day Services and Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) for his significant contributions to the field of home-based primary care and commitment to caring for older, chronically ill Americans and other medically complex patients. On April 6, 2018, Dr. Cornwell was the guest of honor at ESSE Adult Day Services’ annual dinner, where Congressman Roskam spoke to Dr. Cornwell’s achievements.
Home-based primary care, or the modern-day house call, brings the expertise of physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants to patients in the comfort and convenience of the home. Dr. Cornwell has made over 33,000 house calls throughout his career. In addition to serving as CEO of HCCI, Dr. Cornwell is a family medicine physician at Northwestern Regional Medical Group. He is also the founder of HomeCare Physicians, serves as the physician representative on the State of Illinois’ Older Adult Services Advisory Committee, and is past president of the American Academy of Home Care Medicine.
Under Dr. Cornwell’s leadership, HCCI recently launched its HCCI Essential Elements of Home-Based Primary Care™ program, which offers an advanced training opportunity for nurse practitioners, physicians, and management and support staff to help them chart a clear path to establishing, expanding or joining a house call program. Additional HCCI educational offerings that provide on-the-job experience and online learning opportunities support the organization’s goal of educating the next generation of home-based primary care providers.
