HEALTH IS OUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET.
It determines our peace of mind and governs our ability to generate stability. But far too often, the most vulnerable are left without the care they need. In over 40 years, Central City Integrated Health has been working to change the paradigm of care in the Detroit community—high-quality care for every person, no matter their station in life.
With decades of cultivating a reputation as an innovator in community mental health, Detroit’s revitalization sets the stage for a unique opportunity. A new story. CCIH can now grow and evolve. As the community begins to morph and take on new characteristics, CCIH’s role will also change.
What does it mean to be well — truly well? Wellness is more than a state of being. It’s a state of peace. With CCIH’s storied history in the city of Detroit, it’s primed to establish itself as a leading name in not only restoring bodies but communities as well.
The health of families and children is impacted by numerous factors. Families moving from homelessness, lack of financial resources, access to food, health literacy, and concentrated poverty can all impact health. CCIH works with you to identify health concerns and interventions that can improve the overall well-being of your family. Both children and parents will be engaged in the health-centered education with the goal of addressing immediate health concerns as well as social determinants of health.
Complete health care for the entire family including:
- Health screenings, well-child visits, and physicals
- Care for diabetes, asthma, blood pressure, and cholesterol
- OB/GYN, pediatric & adolescent medicine, internal & geriatric medicine, and HIV/AIDS care
- Quick access to lab and x-ray services (urinalysis, blood glucose, and pregnancy testing)
Primary health care and enabling services that are provided through a nurse-managed program. The health care services are enhanced through case management, behavioral and substance abuse services, health education, outreach and enrollment, and referral arrangements for specialty health care, laboratory services, diagnostic testing, and dental care.
