The Caddo Nation Community Health Program Mission is to assist eligible Native American Individuals and families within our service area to gain access to comprehensive health care services. Our program is funded by IHS on a yearly basis to assist Caddo tribal members with health needs. We are often a vital link to health care services for our communities in rural areas.
Our work includes scheduling appointments for our clients, pick up and delivery of medications, home visits, case screening and management, monitoring of patients, and health education. All of our CHR staff members are trained in CPR, First Aid and as EMS First Responders.
Transportation to outside referrals is provided if the appointment has been made by an IHS doctor.
OUR OFFICE REQUIRES 3 DAYS ADVANCE NOTICE OF PRESCRIPTION REFILLS. FOR LAWTON INDIAN HOSPITAL CALL 1.888.275.4886 TO
FILL PRESCRIPTIONS AND ALLOW 2 DAYS BEFORE WE CAN PICK UP.
The staff transports clients who are without transportation to doctor’s appointments at the Anadarko IHS clinic or the Lawton IHS hospital, El Reno or Clinton. We can also provide transportation to outside referrals made by a doctor from IHS. The CHR Office needs to know 2 to 3 days in advance about appointments, refills of prescriptions, and transportation needs.
