Comprehensive medical care within 30 days of arrival
Each year, new refugees and asylees settle in the Philadelphia area. They are required to have a medical exam within 30 days of arrival. The New Arrivals Clinic at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia, a partnership between the departments of medicine and pediatrics, works with local resettlement agencies to coordinate services.
We offer comprehensive medical care including:
- Screening for Infectious Diseases including intestinal parasites, malaria, STD’s, hepatitis, schistosoma, stronglyloides and tuberculosis
- Attention to Nutrition and growth including Iron, Vitamin B12 and D deficiencies
- Mental health screening and referrals including for PTSD
- Overseas Immunization records are reviewed, and patients receive necessary vaccines in our clinic
- Provide referrals to subspecialists including vision and dental care
At the New Arrivals Clinic, we understand that navigating the healthcare system and adjusting to life in the US may be difficult first. We work closely with patients and resettlement agencies to coordinate medical and mental healthcare. We ensure that families are prepared to enroll their children in school and provide close follow up of growth and development. We aim for culturally competent and trauma informed healthcare that allows all newly arrived immigrants to thrive in their new home.
