Healthcare Resources Roundup0
We are firmly in the throes of winter and if Punxsutawney Phil is to be trusted, the chilly weather is not going to end any time soon. In addition to salting our steps, shoveling our walkways, and scraping our cars during these frosty months, we need to be mindful of our physical and mental well-being. To help you stay healthy, here is a list of different medical resources around Kalamazoo.
The mission at ISK is to promote mental health, intellectual/developmental disability, and substance use disorder resources that empower people to succeed. For more than 30 years, this organization has provided services ranging from psychiatric support to housing opportunities for adults, children, and families. With three locations, ISK works to meet the needs of residents throughout Kalamazoo.
Focusing on developmental and mental health, ASK provides families with the resources to destigmatize the issues they face and participate in their communities. With a staff of specialists that operate with experience and empathy, ASK inspires positive growth. Additional services include advocacy events, opportunities in community involvement, and an extensive list of both self-care and general resources.
As a preferred medical resource for underserved patients throughout Kalamazoo County, Family Health Center ensures that everyone has access to quality, patient-centered health care. With locations on West Paterson and Alcott streets, the center offers a robust list of services including integrated care, family medicine, pediatrics, physical and occupational therapy, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, immediate care, dental services, behavioral and mental health, lab tests and screenings, vaccines, substance abuse disorder/medical assisted treatment, and on-site pharmacies.
One of the best ways to preserve your health is through physical fitness. At the YMCA, patrons can partake in a variety of health and wellness activities including personal training, LIVESTRONG classes, and programming intended to delay Parkinson’s Disease symptoms.
Since we have a nationally recognized medical school in our backyard, it only makes sense that WMed Health would be somewhere on our list of resources. With more than 330 providers, patients can expect a team approach to their care. Interested in becoming or a patient at WMed Health? Call 259.337.4600 today to schedule a telehealth appointment.
