Wellness Center

Department of Human Resources

The Wellness Center offers services to assist patients and support providers on specific needs of the HIV population in primary care within the health center.

The goals for the program are retention in care, which includes all aspects of the patient's health needs. We also make referrals and link patients to services not provided by the health center.

Also, we track and monitor patients for medical compliance at all levels, as well as meet with providers to discuss patient health and other needs that will retain a patient's care. Our staff also tries to address the patient's problems and concerns.

Health Education is another funded activity. Our Health Educator works with patients on self-efficacy, implements different levels on Diffusion of Effective Interventions, and prevention on risk behaviors for both positive and non- positive patients.

For 2012, Wellness patient enrollment was 103. There were 1,584 encounters for Wellness staff, and 424 visits for primary care staff.
