Family Health Centers (FHC) provides interpreters for any patient who cannot communicate in English or who is deaf or hard of hearing at no cost to the patient. We also provide a number of translated forms and handouts in other languages. Let a staff member know if you need an interpreter or help reading a form.
Refugee Health Program
Family Health Centers provides Refugee Health Assessments for Louisville’s newly arrived refugees. This is a comprehensive health assessment that includes the following:
- Evaluation and diagnostic services to determine health status and identify physical and mental health problems;
- Follow-up for conditions identified overseas;
- Referral for follow-up of identified health problems; and
- Education/orientation to local health care services.
For many clients, this exam is the entry into health care in the United States. These new and diverse members of our community often times go on to seek primary care from FHC-Americana and other Family Health Center sites.
FHC’s Refugee Health Program receives funding through the Kentucky Office for Refugees (KOR). Services are coordinated with Louisville’s local Refugee Resettlement Agencies: Kentucky Refugee Ministries (KRM) and Catholic Charities Migration & Refugee Services, University of Louisville School of Medicine, Louisville Metro Department for Public Health & Wellness TB Clinic, Americana Community Center, and other community partners and specialists.
Our Refugee Health Assessments are provided at the FHC-Americana site located at 4805 Southside Drive, Louisville, KY 40214, telephone 502-772-8860.
