Maternal and Child Health
At IHCRC, the family is recognized as the traditional and most important basic social unit in Native American communities. Promoting pediatric growth and developmental progress is a high priority for the children served at our clinic. Early prenatal care is provided to pregnant women and post-partum care is provided after the birth of the child. Parents are counseled on the importance of preventive health measures, as well as the importance of parental interaction and play with their infants and young children. Ancillary care to the family is complemented with internal referrals to the dental, optometry, behavioral health, WIC and wellness departments. Read more: Maternal and Child Health
