Kids Health Harbor Clinic


The goal of SIU Center for Family Medicine's Kids Health Harbor is to provide high-quality health care that is coordinated, continuous, and comprehensively provided by culturally competent health care professionals who are familiar with the mandates, obligations, and intricacies of the foster care system in Illinois.

SIU Center for Family Medicine has a dedicated clinic for children who are displaced from home. Our goal is to provide a medical safety net for children that have experienced adverse childhood events and life disruptions. We aim to be a supportive member of a team that helps build resiliency and protective factors for vulnerable children and families.
