Good News Recap: December 2020
Best holiday wishes from our team at LCH. 

Despite the challenges of providing health and community services in what will soon be a year-long pandemic, there have been so many moments of hope. With technology, and with some creativity, we have continued to stay connected and strong in providing care to our members. There is much to look forward to in the new year: the anticipation of a vaccine, warmer weather, and the expansion of our Oxford location where we will bring our integrated care model within walking distance of Oxford residents. May you find comfort and warmth during the holidays. We are so grateful for this community.

To good health,

Construction Continues in Oxford
LCH Oxford is looking forward to moving into our larger location downtown in just a couple of months! Stay tuned for information about our grand opening in 2021. The larger facility will allow us to bring our integrated model of care to the Oxford community, where our providers, nurses, case workers, behavioral health consultants, and member relations specialists will work side by side to coordinate and navigate the care of our patients.
New Chair Increases Capacity
Many thanks to the Delta Dental Community Cares Foundation for the new chair in our Dental Center. To keep patients safe during the pandemic, the dental team has provided care on a limited schedule in order to minimize the number of patients in a shared space and to allow ample time to disinfect between patients. The new chair, which has been installed in a separate exam room, has allowed us to grow our ability to provide care.
Behavioral Health Schedule Expands
As we look to a new year, remember the best way to take care of others is to take care of yourself!
