Brigham and Women's Advanced Primary Care Associates on South Huntington in Jamaica Plain is a primary care practice for adults 18 and older. A NCQA level 3 certified medical home, South Huntington is winner of the 2014 Society of General Internal Medicine Quality and Practice Innovation Award, and was one of the practices profiled in the ABIM Foundation's "In Search of Joy in Practice: A Report of 23 High- Functioning Primary Care Practices".
