What is a Community Health Worker?

A Community Health Worker (CHW) is patient advocate that helps individuals in need connect to community and medical services. A CHW acts as a bridge for the community to help connect patients to medical care and community resources that are offered by other organizations or community partners. Community Health Workers are an integral part of the health center to ensure patients are getting the care they need.

What does a Community Health Worker do?

A Community Health Worker can help you schedule an appointment, access transportation, help you enroll in insurance, and even get connected to community agencies for additional assistance.  This assistance can come in the form of clothing, food, housing, legal services, diapers, or other services.   In addition, our CHWs can help you enroll in health center programs like WIC, Healthy Start, or Parenting classes. CHWs help you identify services that would benefit you and your family as well as provide medical education on your diagnosed medical conditions.



How do I connect with a Community Health Worker?

There are Community Health Workers assigned to the Downtown campus, the Cabot Westside campus, the North Oak campus, the Clay County campus, as well as on site in the Blue Springs School District*. You can reach a CHW by calling your nearest Sam Rodgers location and asking to speak with the Community Health Worker that serves your clinic.
