CCI works with the Maryland Department of Health to provide health assessments to newly arrived refugees, asylees, those with special immigrant visas (SIVs), victims of trafficking, and humanitarian parolees resettling in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties. We also accept referrals from the International Rescue Committee, Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area, and the Ethopian Community Development Council, Inc. Our refugee health patients come from all over the world. Many arrive from Cameroon, Afghanistan, El Salvador, Ethiopia, and Guatemala.
CCI commits to providing you with the care that makes you feel comfortable and in your language of choice. You don’t have to speak English to receive services. At CCI, we take the time to get to know you, your experiences, and your journey, so we can provide the best possible care. We will address your health needs and connect you to community resources to support you as you adjust to life in your new community.
We schedule refugee health visits at three locations Greenway, Silver Spring, and Takoma Park. Two (2) appointments are scheduled for refugee health visits. The first is to determine your needs and a follow-up visit one week later.
During the first visit, a member of the care team conducts bloodwork and screenings for conditions, such as behavioral health, diabetes, and parasitic diseases. You also receive information on how to obtain health insurance, where to buy groceries, how to use public transportation, and where to fill a prescription. The first appointment is also an opportunity for us to check with you about how you are adjusting to living in a different country, and to refer you to other health services you may need, such as prenatal care and dental.
No matter your location, call our main line to schedule over the phone.
Information at your fingertips! It takes just 5 minutes to sign up, and from there you can manage your appointments and track your health history all in one convenient place.
