Why Centering?

Centering is changing the way we give and receive care, creating a better care experience for patients and providers. To see this in action, click above and watch the McNulty Foundation's video featuring Dr. Amy Crockett's Centering work in South Carolina.

Centering is a better way to get care

Centering is Group Care

Centering brings people with similar health needs together to get their healthcare in a supportive learning environment.


CenteringPregnancy is group prenatal care bringing women who are due at the same time out of exam rooms and into a comfortable group setting.


CenteringParenting is family centered well-child group care bringing parents and babies together for care through the first two years of life.



What does Centering look like?

News stations, Centering practice sites, and patients are using their local channels, websites, and social media to show what Centering is for them.
