Rawlins County Health Center is proud to provide Atwood and the surrounding communities with access to routine specialty healthcare services. Outreach physicians provide health care services on a monthly basis in several areas.

Specialty Services

Available specialty clinic services include but are not limited to:

Coumadin Out-Patient Program

Patients who are taking anticoagulants need to be aware of the potential side-effects that can occur while taking their medications. If not monitored closely, serious side-effects can lead to undesirable complications or conditions. That is why RCHC offers a Coumadin Outpatient Program. The use of Coumadin must be monitored closely to ensure correct dosage and to minimize the risk of bleeding due to excessive blood thinning.

Our clinical nurse will work closely with your physician to ensure that your needs are met. You can also rest easy knowing that skilled medical professionals will always be available to answer your questions.

Diabetic Services

Educational Opportunities

Rawlins County Health Center offers people with diabetes (PWD) and their families a comprehensive education and treatment program to help them understand the disease process of diabetes. All of these services are provided by RCHC health professionals including a registered nurse/certified diabetes educator, and a registered dietitian/certified diabetes educator.

Blue Cross / Blue Shield and Medicare approved programs provide education on the basic tools of diabetic care: food, fitness, medications and monitoring.
