A welcoming provider is one that is committed to:
Taking affirmative steps to address the concerns of their immigrant patients about seeking healthcare
Developing internal policies and procedures that forward immigrant patient’s safety and sense of well-being
Continuing to address obstacles and concerns facing immigrants in accessing healthcare during these uncertain times
The attached model protocols, policies, practices and plans are designated to guide entities as they seek to fulfill their commitment to these three goals. We hope this document will create a starting point for conversations, guidance as entities make decisions about how they serve immigrants, and suggestions for continuing growth as a Welcoming Provider. With your commitment, we can build healthy, strong, and vibrant communities in Illinois.
