June 4, 2018

Are you ready to live a healthier, happier life? The best thing you can do for yourself is to receive regular preventative care. At SIHF Healthcare, we strive for excellence in treating both acute illnesses and chronic conditions. To achieve this, we offer fully integrated medical services so you can see various providers at one location. Take a look at a few of the services we provide. After all, our goal is to build strong patient-provider relationships to help you stay healthy for years to come.

Ensure your family maintains good health by visiting our Family Medicine practitioners. These medical professionals are trained to do exactly what it sounds like; treat the whole family. They can treat mom, dad, the kids, even elderly patients. Come in for a preventative care visit, a yearly checkup, or same-day sick visits. Under the Family Medicine umbrella, SIHF Healthcare offers women’s health visits, family planning services, minor procedures, adolescent care, geriatric medicine, and more. Our providers are guaranteed to provide you with respect, compassion, and confidentiality.

The Internal Medicine specialists focus on a variety of chronic conditions, acute illnesses, age-related health issues, and mental-health conditions. Regularly seeing an Internal Medicine provider will help you stay on top of necessary information regarding your overall healthcare.  You’ll learn how to prevent the development of certain conditions and illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes. It is imperative to stay on top of your health with regular preventative care visits and treatment for long-term conditions.

Even if pregnancy isn’t on your radar, you should schedule regular appointments with an OB/GYN. The Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at SIHF Healthcare offers a variety of services including pap smears, breast exams, treatments of sexually transmitted diseases, gynecological surgery, family planning, etc. Most insurance plans are accepted, and the staff is dedicated to providing excellent preventative healthcare to all women.

Don’t forget about your mental health; it’s just as important as your overall physical health. The behavioral and mental health professionals at SIHF Healthcare are specialized in treating a variety of conditions such as ADHD, anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, and behavioral issues. This integrated team of trained and certified medical professionals will work directly with you to create a customized treatment plan that will help you get where you want to be in life.

While you may have heard that the key to living a long, healthy life is diet and exercise; you cannot forget to include regular preventative care. While veggies and a 5-mile run may help with mental restoration, they won’t take care of breast exams, flu shots or blood work. That’s where SIHF Healthcare comes in. We make receiving care easy and stress-free with over 30 health centers conveniently located throughout Southern and Central Illinois. Make an appointment to come see us; you’ll be glad you did!
