Healthcare Access

Access to quality healthcare is important to reduce health disparities and improve health status for people in The Rapides Foundation service area.

Factors that limit care include financial barriers, personal and cultural barriers, not knowing what to do or where to go, physical or geographic barriers, and shortages in healthcare professionals and facilities.

The Foundation’s Healthcare Access efforts are designed to address medication access and cancer screenings; foster the establishment and expansion of primary care access with integrated behavioral and oral health services; and to develop a strategy around related medical manpower issues.
