Integrated Services for Children with Special Healthcare Needs

Mission of the Integrated Services Program

ISP partners with the families of children and youth with special health care needs to inform, educate, and plan so parents may make informed decisions for their child’s future.


Central Utah Public Health CSHCN clinics are held every other month at our Richfield office. In 2020 they will be held in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Various providers come from the Salt Lake area to provide evaluation and diagnosis for children ages 0-18. Some of the specialists include a psychologist, nurse practitioner, occupational therapist, speech/language pathologist, and an audiologist.

 

Locally we have our RN care coordinator who partners with families to: assess patient and family needs, help families create care plans, connect to Medicaid, public assistance, health insurance and community resources, plan for transition into adult programs, and schedule patients/families with clinical service providers. Contact Linda, our care coordinator to discuss concerns and schedule an appointment by calling 435-743-5723.

Multiethnic Arms Raised Holding Text Vaccination

Vaccine-preventable disease has declined by over 99% since the introduction of vaccines. Outbreaks can occur when vaccination levels decrease. The Utah Immunization Program recognizes and supports the importance of immunizations as part of a well-balanced healthcare approach for ALL ages.

The mission of the Utah Department of Health Immunization Program is to improve the health of Utah's citizens through vaccinations to reduce illness, disability, and death from vaccine-preventable infections.

The Utah Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program provides vaccines to children who are: not insured, on Medicaid, Native American or Alaskan Native, or whose insurance doesn't cover immunizations. These vaccines are available at no cost or low-cost or eligible children.
