Intercare has served the medically needy in southwest michigan for 43 years. In this time, intercare has grown from a small seasonal migrant health center to a six-county network with six fixed sites, two mobile units and a migrant voucher program.
dental program - intercare's dental program provides quality care to patients regardless of the patient's ability to pay. During the past year there were 39,137 dental visits. Intercare provides dental and hygiene services at five clinics, on a mobile van, and in many elementary schools and head start programs.
maternal infant health program (mihp) - intercare's mihp provides quality care to patients regardless of the patient's ability to pay. During the past year there were 7,417 mihp visits. Intercare has been certified by the state of michigan to provide this special program for high risk pregnant women and infants on medicaid since 1989. Clients are referred to the program by physicians. Services include in-home nursing, nutrition counseling, and social work visits that address each individual's identified risk factors. The overall goal of the program is to improve pregnancy outcomes, reduce infant mortality rates, and improve early childhood development.
behavioral health services - intercare seeks to provide integrated health care which combines both physical and mental health services to address the whole person, not just one part of his or her condition. Many patients who are seen at intercare may also have situations that could be addressed by counseling. This can then help them manage their illness better, reduce stress and depression, and obtain other mental health services if necessary.
