Do You Need Additional Assistance?
Please call 765-552-4562 to speak with Trisha Sullivan, Health Access Worker at St.Vincent Mercy Hospital if you need assistance with:
· Finding a doctor
· Applying for health coverage (Medicaid, HIP, Medicare, HHW)
· Applying for public programs (Food Stamps, TANF, Social Security, WIC, Breast and Cervical Cancer Program) or Connections to other community resources and agencies for assistance.  Health Access Workers are here to help you with all your needs. When you come into the hospital or doctor's office for services, be sure to let the staff know you are  working with Trisha Sullivan. That way, we can better serve you by working together as a team to help you remove any barriers to you and your family’s health.

Update on Immunizations:
Every child (K-12) must have 2 Varicella (chickenpox vaccines) by the beginning of next school year. Please check with your family doctors or Mrs. Bock if you are not sure about your child’s immunizations. You may also want to check on Hepatitis A for your little ones at home.

Internet Essentials:
Internet - Some of you were asking about the Internet Essentials program that allows parents of children on the free or reduced lunch plan to qualify for this internet program for $9.95 a month. You may also take advantage of buying a low-cost computer and receive Internet training at no additional charge. The number to call is 1-855-846-8376.  Hope that helps!
