Caddo Nation Community Health
The Caddo Nation’s Community Health Program is funded by Indian Health Services on a yearly basis to assist Caddo tribal members with their health needs. The CHR Program’s purpose is to assist eligible Indian individuals and families within our service are to gain access to comprehensive health care services.
All CHR staff members are trained in CPR, First Aid, and EMS First Responder.
The CHR Program is often a vital link to health care services for our Indian people in rural areas. Our work includes making and rescheduling appointments for clients, pick up and delivery of medications, home visits, case screening and management, monitoring of patients, and health education.
The staff transports clients who are without transportation to doctors 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. There is a call-in procedure for requesting medication at the Lawton Indian Hospital; call toll-free 1-888-275-4886 for assistance, and allow 2 days before picking up medicines.
