Working here in the Administration building, it makes it hard to send love to our fantastic staff on a daily basis or even a weekly basis.
HealthNet staff members are those who carry out our mission of improving lives by providing compassionate health care and support services on the front lines. Everyday they take on new challenges to increase access to care for all in the Indianapolis community. So, from the cashiers at our health centers to the directors of our outreach programs, we want to thank you for your work!
In our health centers…
Our staff work hard to serve over 50,000 patients per year. With services including pediatrics, family practice, internal medicine, OB/GYN and nurse midwifery services, foot care, immunizations, x-ray, dental care, vision care, health education, social services, behavioral health, family planning, free HIV testing, free pregnancy tests, interpreters, breast & cervical cancer screening assistance, financial planning, Medicaid and Medicare enrollment, and even more, our staff works together as a team to treat the entire person.
Fitting all of those services together can be tough at times because of the constant need for communication, but our staff makes it work and continues to increase access to care while maintaining a fantastic level of efficiency and service. THANK YOU!
In our outreach programs…
Our Homeless Initiative Program (HIP), Better Indy Babies/Healthy Families Programs (BIBs/HF), and School-Based Services are an awesome extension of what happens in our health centers. Over 3,200 homeless individuals are served by HIP to help them get on track to reaching housing, employment and self-sufficiency. Each year, our BIBs/HF programs have over 12,500 encounters with pregnant mothers and their families to promote healthy growth and development for the child through a variety of services. And, our School-Based Services reach over 3,000 students each year, to provide them with much-needed primary care, preventive care and educational health services.
Valentine’s Day is a day to show love to the special people in your life. Here in the Admin. building, our staff that serve patients and clients directly on a day-to-day basis are the special people in our lives. Our jobs are made easier because of their hard work, and we appreciate everything they do!
