Here for You - Pediatric Care - Lawrence County


We’re here for you!

Have you found yourself to be “out of care” over the past few years? Missed an annual wellness checkup or need services? During the challenging years of 2020-22 many people may have experienced inadvertent gaps in their typical preventive and routine care.

Further, during that unusual time many providers also worked very long and stressful hours. Those years left their mark.

It’s Time for Recovery and Well-Being!

Today, SICHC is joining with many other healthcare institutions to close any remaining gaps. In fact, we think of it as 21st century healthcare reinvented – empowering patients, supporting our healthcare heroes, and transforming services for all. We’re serious about this.

The good news? SICHC has expanded its healthcare staff to meet the needs of patients seeking renewed preventive and routine care. It’s a good time to get current and caught up!

Closing Gaps

In the days ahead we’ll be providing support for ongoing recovery and stabilization, including expanding our services to further close any gaps from patients previously delaying care. We’ll be focused on renewed preventive and routine care, as well as providing behavioral care services. We’ll help you proactively address chronic conditions and support any other situations arising from patients and families being “out of care” during the pandemic years.

Additional staff and resources mean we can better support our healthcare heroes. And that means elevated service for all!

If you’re seeking to catch up with any care or service that you missed during the past few years, we encourage you to contact us now. Let’s take care of business together – we’re here for you!

We at Southern Indiana Community Health Care are excited – we count it a privilege to now offer high-quality Primary Care, Women’s Health (obstetrics) services, Pediatric Care, and more to you and your family.

You’ll find that our services are comprehensive, patient-centered and accessible. It’s our respectful opportunity to provide the Lawrence County region with the highest quality of community-sensitive care based on Christ-oriented principles.
