The Stickney Public Health District operates two primary care clinics providing free physician services and Health District programs to township residents.
The role of SPHD clinics is to accommodate the needs of area residents of all ages concerning preventative care and basic health issues aimed at improving overall health care quality.
All clinic sites are staffed with a physician and support staff that is available for all residents, regardless of age, income level or insurance. Services include but are not limited to sick visits, physical exams, screenings for TB, lead levels, cholesterol, diabetes, and hypertension. Free or low cost Immunizations are available for children and adults including influenza. Emergency treatment or long-term critical care issues that require immediate attention cannot be handled for the safety of the client.
The practice of our physicians is to supplement private MD visits and to care for those in need of routine medical services. Clients are prioritized and seen on a medical need of service basis and/or taken on a first-come, first-served basis. We do our best to accommodate all clients in a timely manner.
A number of other health services are also available through the Public Health Nursing Department including: pregnancy testing, communicable disease investigations and follow-up, home health care, lead level case management, school nursing services, vision and hearing screenings.
Residents 18 years of age and older need to obtain a Stickney Township identification card to obtain services. Proof of residency is required to obtain this card. Three forms of identification will be requested with one being a current government issued photo ID. Other examples include current bills or current bank statements. The address needs to match on all forms being used for the proof of residency. Please contact any of the offices or stop by during business hours for more information.
All Stickney Township Residents are eligible to use the resources provided including clinics services. Medicare/Medicaid is accepted. Private insurance? Can’t get in to see your doctor? You are welcome to use the clinic services too!
