Who is Eligible?

The Community Health Team provides services to all Suquamish Tribal Members and their families residing in Kitsap County. We also serve members of other federally recognized tribes, who reside within the Port Madison Indian Reservation.

What does Community Health do?

Our Community Health team uses non-clinical approaches for improving health and navigating barriers within the health system. We also focus on preventing disease and reducing health disparities. This is accomplished by addressing social, behavioral, environmental, economic, and medical factors throughout our community, its members, and their families.

Below is a list to of the most common services we provide. Click on a service or contact us to learn more.

We organize patient appointments and care activities along with sharing information among everyone involved with a person’s care routine.

We coordinate with healthcare providers, manage appointments and treatment plans, provide certain nursing services, and help patients reach their optimal health.

These visits can include checking what a patient is eating and drinking, their blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, and breathing. The checks can also ensure that they’re taking their prescriptions, supplements, and performing any treatments correctly.

As patient advocates, we give a voice to patients, survivors, and their caregivers by informing the public, healthcare providers, and other communities about any issues that arise. We also safeguard patients from errors, incompetence, and misconduct, protect patient rights, and build awareness and support for patients, survivors, and their caregivers.

Community Health offers assistance for anyone facing barriers that are preventing them from accessing transportation to their healthcare visits and/or medical related appointments.

Community Health can help you obtain, deliver, and in some cases, provide Durable Medical Equipment (DME) when needed. DME is any medical equipment used in the home. Examples are: Walkers, Wheelchairs, Oxygen Supplies, CPAP Machines, Glucose Monitors, and much more.

Traditional Food are important to the Suquamish way of life and we work to ensure that those foods are incorporated into tribal programs and events.

WIC stands for Women, Infants, and Children and it is a supplemental nutrition program for pregnant, breastfeeding or post-partum women, infants and children to age 5.

Wisdom Warriors is a monthly group, typically offered from Fall to Spring and is focused on self-management of mind, body, and spirit. Topics discussed include: stress management, dealing with addictions, managing chronic diseases, general health, and diet. It does all this while incorporating the Suquamish culture.

We host classes in nutrition, chronic disease management, diabetes management, childbirth education, and more.

Community Health can help with the tools, support, and education needed to help someone quit their smoking habit.

We oversee the usage of prescribed medications to ensure they are taken properly and achieve the desired outcome. This includes monitoring, reconciling medications, and reviewing prescribed drugs and their possible side effects to create treatment plans and monitor their safety and efficacy.

If you have any barriers preventing you from filling your prescriptions in person, we can have your medication picked up from your pharmacy and delivered to your door or assist you with enrolling in a home delivery plan.

Community Health offers a Flu Vaccine Clinic where you can receive a vaccine that protects against the four influenza viruses that are most common during the Fall and Winter seasons. Protection from a flu shot lasts around 6 to 8 months. Once the season ends, the flu shot does not protect you any longer, so you will need a new vaccination for the following year’s season.

People who are up to date on their COVID vaccines have lower risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19 than people who are unvaccinated or who have not completed the doses recommended for them by CDC. Additional updated COVID-19 vaccine boosters can help restore protection that has decreased since previous vaccination. To learn about eligibility, check out our Health & Wellness News section or contact us directly.

Community Health has nurses that fill health system gaps in our community. They go to organizations, schools, and businesses to offer health education, medical services, and rehabilitation. They can provide home health screenings, education, offer certain in-home treatments, and so much more.
