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 physical, intellectual or developmental disabilities. As part of the integrated medical home model, behavioral health and care-coordination services are embedded into our practice on all levels. We offer expanded access to routine medical services, including preventative healthcare, reproductive health and personal care.

We are committed to providing medical care for people with a variety of 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. 

Whether you need primary care, behavioral health services or care-coordination, at RISN we care-coordinate about YOU!
