Growing to Meet Community Needs

Shawnee’s Board of Directors approved the agency’s FY2020-2022 strategic plan at its June, 2019 board meeting. Prior to the approval of the plan, the board reviewed the Center’s accomplishments outlined in its FY2014-2019 plan.  I am pleased to share with you that Shawnee has accomplished all of the following objectives over the last few years:

Shawnee Welcomes Dr. Jeffrey Hill!

Dr. Jeffrey Hill, long time primary care physician serving Scioto County, is joining Shawnee Family Health Center in August. Dr. Hill has been Shawnee’s primary care medical director since 2008 while he has maintained a private practice in the community. He and the nurse practitioners at Shawnee will continue to provide quality primary care services to our patients. Although Dr. Hill will not be taking new patients, Shawnee is accepting new primary care patients. Dr. Hill has invited all of his current patients to continue care at his new location where they will experience few changes. They will even be greeted by the same friendly, caring office staff – who have also decided to join us on Washington Street! We are very excited and honored that Dr.

Crisis Intervention Services Contract

Shawnee is pleased to announce that the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental health Services Board of Adams, Lawrence and Scioto Counties has awarded us the contract to provide after-hours and during business hours crisis intervention services for our three counties. Since we were already certified by the Ohio Mental Health and Addictions Services Department , there will be no disruption in this service for the agencies and clients needing it. John Bowman will serve as the clinical supervisor of this service and Shawnee will contract with qualified mental health professionals as needed to ensure crisis coverage for each of the three counties that we serve.

Shawnee Offers Support Group

Health Information Exchange

Shawnee Family Health participates in a statewide health information exchange called Clinisync. This means that our patients' health care providers at Shawnee can use this electronic network, or exchange, to securely gain access to their health records. This gives us a better picture of our patients' health needs and can help eliminate the need for duplicate testing. For example, if a patient had a blood test while in a Columbus hospital, your provider at Shawnee can access the results of those tests, which may eliminate the need for the same testing being done. We are excited to have this resource at our finger tips designed to enhance continuity of care.

Shawnee Family Health Center No Show and Cancellation Policy Effective March 3, 2014, if you do not come to a scheduled appointment or do not call us at least 24 hours prior to the appointment to cancel then you will be listed as “not showing” for the appointment or as a failed appointment.
