All the healthcare info you need is now in one place. Coachella Valley Health Info Place – CV HIP – links users to the local free and low-cost health programs. Resources on a large number of subjects are available in 97 languages. CVHIP.com’s goal is to provide an all-in-one resource website for the needs of Coachella Valley.
Visit CVHIP now!
Herb K. Schultz, CEO of Desert Healthcare District said, “Creating CV HIP was an extensive project and one that had not been done before in the Coachella Valley.” It is a valuable resource to be able to connect people with the specific organizations they need to find without searching endlessly themselves.
Palm Springs Mayor Pro Tem J.R. Roberts referred to the website as “the ultimate healthcare Google for the valley.”
Roberts also gave a brief praise of the website, saying: “This is a major advance in terms of helping people to get, and stay, healthy … CV HIP is the mother dealing with food insecurity … not knowing where to go for urgently needed food for her family. CV HIP is for the person that is homeless and struggling with the summer heat. CV HIP can point that person to a cooling center and possibly save a life. CV HIP is for first responders, 911 operators and social workers — everyone — to help find free and low-cost healthcare and services for those that are distressed.”
They will keep the most current information and constantly be updating.
Rep. Raul Ruiz said, “Everyone deserves access to high quality, affordable healthcare and other social services that give them the opportunity to lead a productive and healthy life … One of the key access barriers found in my 2010 Coachella Valley Health Care Initiative was that many residents simply didn’t know what local services were available to them. This tool will help solve the problem. I am thrilled to see that this new resource will be free and available to all residents of the Coachella Valley.”
And here is a word from Fourth District county Supervisor V. Manuel Perez “Having worked in the field of community health, I know education and outreach to our community members are important. Many times, individuals are unaware of services that are available and, for this reason, don’t access them. CV HIP will help people find and access health resources available in the community, from their community health center to events such as the Flying Doctors or the Migrant Health Resource Fair. This website is a great use of technology and a valuable guide that will go a long way toward creating healthier communities.”
The website is useful for all local residents, and you can keep up with them on Facebook and Instagram.
