Treatment and Services
While providing obstetric and gynecological care, the Refugee Women’s Health Clinic (RWHC) emphasizes intensive case management, continuity of care, and language-appropriate health navigation. Additional services include educational classes, counseling and community outreach. The RWHC has become a safe haven for many women seeking medical care for themselves and their families.
The caring staff at the RWHC is sensitive to the physical, psychological and social health needs of refugees, providing integrated care to help them overcome their previous, sometimes traumatic, experiences. MIHS specifically employs members of the refugee community within the RWHC as cultural health navigators who act as liaisons between the health care system and patients. Maximizing the level of care as well as the comfort of the clinic environment, these invaluable members of the clinic team are both multilingual and multicultural, offering in-person interpretation services to patients in out- and inpatient care settings.
