Located within the Comprehensive Health Center (CHC) General Pediatrics Clinic, our Pediatric Refugee Clinic is a medical home for refugee/immigrant children and children born to refugee families. Our staff members include doctors, nurses, medical assistants, care coordinators, social workers, and cultural health navigators. Together, we provide primary care that is culturally and linguistically appropriate.

Given the unique needs of our patients, we provide the following services:

  • Language and cultural interpretation – collectively, our staff members speak Arabic, Burmese, French, Karen, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Maay Maay, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, and Thai.
  • Transportation to and from medical visits
  • Care coordination for referrals within MIHS and for those at other facilities
  • Assistance with pharmacy and laboratory needs
  • Connections to community resources
  • Collaboration with local refugee resettlement agencies, the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, the Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program, and other organizations

Our clinic is also involved in the education of nursing students, medical students, and resident physicians.
