Adult and Child Health

Contact Us

Adult Health

Adult health services are offered to adults age 18 and over.  Primary care of adults includes full physicals, cancer screening, and management of acute and chronic illnesses.  A strong emphasis is placed on patient education.  Our priority is early detection and management of modifiable diseases such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and others.  Adult health services are integrated with laboratory and immunization services, indigent pharmacy services for eligible patients, and referrals.

Child Health

Child health services are offered as a part of the comprehensive primary care program at the health department.  Child health services include well child physicals (periodic checkups), school physicals, and sick child or problem visits.  Child health services are extended to patients age 3 years old to 18 years old.  We participate in the Medicaid Child Health Checkup program and our physical exams meet all required components of a comprehensive assessment and exam.  These services are integrated with our obstetrics and immunization programs, WIC, and other services.  Parent and patient education are emphasized for prevention and early detection of problems.
