Rowan Integrated Special Needs Center

Excellence in Care for Individuals with Disabilities

We Care-Coordinate About You

Founded in 2019, the Rowan Integrated Special Needs (RISN) Center is South Jersey's first primary care practice dedicated to serving the needs of individuals with complex special needs. As part of the integrated medical home model, primary care becomes the central point for care that is truly collaborative and patient centered. By maintaining primary care services through RISN, behavioral health and care-coordination services are able to then be embedded into our practice on all levels, providing comprehensive, coordinated, and accessible medical care from a team committed to prevention and wellness in all areas of life. We offer expanded access to routine medical services, including preventative healthcare, reproductive health, and personal care.

Creating the Foundation, Bridge and Path

We are committed to providing medical care for people with a variety of childhood onset chronic complex health conditions as well as intellectual and developmental disabilities. RISN is dedicated to educating patients, caregivers and other health professionals in how disabilities affect all aspects of our patients' daily lives so they can continue to thrive in the community. We also recognize the vital role caregivers play in the success of their loved ones with disabilities and seek to maintain caregiver health by offering them primary care services as well as caregiver support. 

Whatever your complex healthcare needs, at RISN we care-coordinate about YOU!
