Care For Growing Families

We believe the best health care involves the whole person—addressing physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health—and that of the family and community. Since 1984, we have worked for a healthier community and for healthier babies.

Specialty Care

Appointments for outpatient general surgery, outpatient orthopedics, cardiology and rheumatology can be made via our regular scheduling process.

Uninsured patients who need specialist care not available at LCHC will be referred to another health facility. We refer patients with Medicaid, Medicare and private insurance to Mt. Sinai or St. Anthony.

The Behavioral Health provider will provide immediate and personal follow-up to the primary care provider including findings and recommendations.
