Removing barriers that often exist between communities and their health care providers
The mission driving our Community Health Department is to remove barriers that often exist between communities and their health care providers. From the beginning, LifeSpring’s mission has been to extend health care beyond our walls into the neighborhoods where our families live, work, and go to school.
Barriers come in many forms and can affect an individuals' ability to receive needed care. Therefore, at the end of each visit, our providers conduct a personalized assessment for each patient to determine if the patient and his/her family require additional care. The findings are communicated to our Community Health Workers (CHWs) who will then schedule office appointments, or home visits, to connect our families with helpful resources.
