  • Addressing stress, anxiety, depression and relationship issues;
  • Creating a plan to achieve better health outcomes;

Primary Medical Care

DSC8567-s

Siouxland Community Health Center is a patient-centered medical home offering a full range of medical care. In addition to general health exams, SCHC provides vaccinations, school and sports physicals, and several minor procedures. The center receives a grant to offer well-child care, which includes services such as well-child visits, vision and health screening, lead testing and free vaccines for children up to age 18, to ensure healthy growth and development.

A number of providers within the community volunteer their time at the health center to offer specialty services, including cardiovascular, surgery, ophthalmology, podiatry, nephrology and plastic surgery.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

Siouxland Community Health Center was recognized as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) in 2012. The designation of the highest level from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) recognizes SCHC for its high standards of care and outstanding support services including case management of chronic diseases that require follow-up and drive referrals to other providers.

The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.” Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care.

NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Prevalidation program evaluates electronic health record (EHR) systems, advanced registries, population health management tools and other related technology solutions to identify alignment with PCMH standards requirements.

Chronic Disease Management

The health center staffs a special team devoted to improving the health of individuals with chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. This award-winning Clinical Pharmacy Services team is part of a national initiative that focuses on clinical pharmacy services to increase medication use, safety and management of high-risk patients with complex health issues.

Laboratory

About 96 percent of all lab tests are performed by laboratory staff and processed on site to ensure timely testing and results. Test results are available before leaving the facility.

Radiology

Radiology services are offered on site to perform diagnostic X-rays of the extremities, chest and other bone injuries.

Case Management

Case managers at SCHC provide education and support for patients with a multitude of medical diagnoses, such as diabetes, co-morbidities and newly diagnosed conditions. They offer referrals to services unavailable at SCHC and insure access to a primary care provider to fulfill the health center’s role as a patient-centered medical home.

A case manager is assigned to every provider.

Urgent Care at The Clinic

A Walk-In Medical Clinic is available to allow patients without an appointment to receive medical care for their emerging acute needs. All patients are accepted. Clinic hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The clinic is also open Saturdays and holidays (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
