Thank you for your interest in Siouxland Community Health Center. We are proud to serve as your medical home and commit to a quality experience for your health care needs.
What to Bring On Your First Visit
For your first visit at Siouxland Community Health Center, you will be asked to complete new patient forms. These forms become part of your medical chart and include demographic information such as your address, phone number, employment and insurance carriers. Other new patient forms will include a basic questionnaire of your personal and family health history. To qualify for our sliding fee programs, uninsured or privately insured patients are also asked to bring two forms of proof of their household income. A financial counselor will assist with this process.
