Removing barriers to care for all people
About 80 percent of health happens outside the doctor’s office. It’s influenced by behavior, where you live, your friends, family and finances. That’s why we partner to build homes. We provide interpreters for people who don’t speak English. And we bring STI screenings directly to homes. Because everyone deserves good health. Even if they don’t get to the doctor.
At-home chlamydia screening
Preventive care is one of the best ways to keep people healthy. But, for many, getting to the doctor is tough. Not to mention the embarrassment or costs that can keep you from going. So we're making one type of care easier to get: sexual health tests.
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.
