Challenges

- Illnesses, injuries and disabilities can lead to homelessness when individuals have insufficient income and lack access to aff ordable health care.

- Living on the street often exacerbates existing health problems and creates new ones.

- Chronic diseases such as hypertension, asthma, diabetes and other ongoing conditions are difficult to manage without access to proper care and medication.

 

Solutions

- Broward Partnership’s on-site Health Care Unit develops a complete medical history, provides physical examinations and evaluates the additional health concerns of each program participant.

- The Health Care Unit also provides educational information and oversees the stabilization of individual medication and treatment programs in conjunction with the participant’s primary care physician.

- The Unit is available for medical care evaluation and referrals to urgent care or specialized medical services as needed.

 

2014 Accomplishments

- 966 medical screenings were performed at the Unit.

- 1,304 follow up visits were made to Broward Health’s Healthcare for the Homeless Program.

- 686 referrals were made by Broward Health for specialized care.
