The Community Outreach Department utilizes Public Health Nurses (PHN’s), Community Health Representatives (CHR’s) and Patient Escorts who serve as liaisons between the Native American community and the RSBCIHI health care system. We work together to meet individual and community needs.
The responsibility for patient care goes beyond the medical clinic or hospital service boundaries. Outreach goes to the home on a continuum of service, and has the patient as a primary focus.
The mission of Community Outreach is to efficiently provide quality multi-disciplinary health care interventions, that respect the traditions and dignity of the clients served, and allow our clients maximum access to health care knowledge and services that promote wellness of individuals, families and communities.
The Outreach Staff will serve as an advocate for the Native American community and assist in coordinating with all other departments and with public and private agencies. For more information contact the Outreach Department at Morongo ext. 1420.
