Removing barriers to care for all people
Preventive care is one of the best ways to keep people healthy. But, for many, getting to the doctor can be difficult or even scary. HealthPartners is working to increase the number of people getting preventive care. We’re doing that by making visits to the doctor easier and less intimidating for all people. Because everyone deserves good health.
At-home chlamydia screening
Chlamydia is the most common sexually-transmitted infection (STI). And it accounts for about 80 percent of STIs in Minnesota. However, embarrassment, cost and transportation keep many people from going to the doctor. That’s why HealthPartners created an at-home chlamydia test.
Making health care accessible
Less invasive cancer screening
Many people avoid colonoscopies because they’ve heard they’re uncomfortable. So, we’re offering less-invasive screening options.
Healthy beginnings for babies
Building strong relationships between pregnant women and their doctors is important. So is our work encouraging parents to read, talk and sing with kids.
Depression screenings after pregnancy
Babies get a lot of well-deserved attention. We want to make sure moms get the attention they need too. So, we’re incentivizing new moms to complete their postpartum health care visits.
Homes in the community
Imagine living without a safe place to call home. Now imagine trying to stay healthy under those circumstances. We work with Habitat for Humanity to help make homes a reality.
Proud to be part of Pride
The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community has a rich history. And HealthPartners and Park Nicollet are proud to celebrate it at Twin Cities Pride each year.
Medical care for people in transition
Park Nicollet partners with St. Mary’s Health Clinics help people who are in transition due to unemployment, unaffordable insurance or no medical benefits.
