Community Outreach

The Outreach Team

Our vision for Round Valley is a safe, productive and positive environment that promotes health, well-being and positive relationships within families, which can then extend to relationships with the community at large.

 
What We Do
We understand that your health concerns continue after you leave the clinic and return home. Our Outreach Team is here to help bridge the gap between your medical visit at the Health Center and your needs at home.
 
Diabetes Case Management
Our Diabetes Education Nurse Mikael Aragon works one on one with each of our diabetes patients to help them understand how to better manage their health.
 
Community Diabetes Action Council
The Community Diabetes Action Council (CDAC) is  a project of RVIHC’s Outreach Department. The goal of the CDAC is to educate and empower the Round Valley community of diabetes patients to manage their health for the best possible quality of life.
 
Public Health Services
Our Public Health Nurse works to assess and address community wide health needs. Public Health can include everything from vaccinations to addressing barriers to healthy eating and physical activity, to street medicine and at risk patients. As part of the Outreach Team, our public health nurse works to optimize health for everyone in the valley.
Home Visits
Our public health nurse is available in select cases to make home visits. The goal of home visits is to decrease hospital readmissions and help elders stay safely at home for as long as possible.
 
Transportation
Jody Boggs leads our transportation department. Our drivers routinely transport patients to dialysis appointments out of town and are available for in and out of town medically necessary appointments. Call us to see if you qualify for transportation assistance
