RCHD Provides Health Services to Refugees
Richmond City Health District welcomes patients of all nationalities, ethnicities, races, and religions. We have been treating refugees from all over the world for years, and we will continue to do so with accuracy and compassion.
RCHD provides health services to newly arrived refugees and asylees. This includes an initial health screening, the purpose of which is to identify and treat any existing condition that could be passed to the public. During the initial visit, we take a health history, conduct laboratory tests for infectious diseases and chronic conditions, and our doctor performs a physical exam. Refugees follow up with RCHD for any recommended immunizations, and they are referred to our other clinics for additional services when necessary, such as maternity clinic. RCHD also completes the health portion of a refugee’s green card paperwork once they become eligible to apply. Please contact our Refugee Nurse at 804-482-5481 for more information.
