We encourage each resident to take advantage of these low-cost ways to better health
The role of the Stickney Township Health Clinics is to accommodate the needs of the area residents of all ages concerning preventative care and basic health issues aimed at improving overall health care quality. Sick visits, physical exams for all ages, immunizations including flu shots for all ages, TB screenings, cholesterol, diabetic and hypertension screenings/care are encouraged. Emergency treatment or long-term critical care issues that require immediate attention cannot be handled for the safety of the client. The practice of the 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 serve basis. We do our best to accommodate all clients in a timely manner.
Clinic services are available to any resident of the Township of Stickney. Proof of residency requires one state issued ID or driver’s license plus two forms of ID with name and address corresponding to state issued ID (no handwritten mail is accepted). Minors under the age of 18 will not be treated in the clinics unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. A minor’s parent/legal guardian has the right to consent to treatment for his/her child. If the parent or legal guardian cannot be present a notarized “Special Medical Power of Attorney” Form must be completed and placed in the client's chart.
Vaccines are provided to the residents of Stickney Public Health District through both in-house and state-wide programs. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have National Vaccine Advisory Committee’s Standards of Pediatric and Adult Immunizations Practices that must be adhered to regardless of which program provides the vaccines. You can find the current Illinois Department of Health Guidelines at http://www.idph.state.il.us/about/shots.htm.
TB, cholesterol, diabetic, blood pressure, strep screenings are all available at the clinics. Minor charges exist for particular tests.
All school and work physicals can be done at the clinics – including preschool, kindergarten, 5th grade, high school and college exams. These exams are free of charge and are done on a first come, first serve basis. Please bring your immunization records with you, as most school and work physical exams cannot be done without this information. Also, please help us, help you avoid the rush of last minute physicals. The clinics can do physicals all year round. Avoid the rush and come in early in the summer months.
