Crittenton Center Partners with Health Center

Three Siouxland health organizations are teaming up to help area moms and their children. For more than a hundred years the Crittenton Center has been helping women, children and families in Siouxland. Now, one of its founding programs, maternal health care, will move from the Crittenton Center to the Siouxland Community Health Center. Staff from the Siouxland Medical Education Foundation will help the Health Center provide care to area mothers. The move was precipitated by a change in the funding streams for the critical services. "I think that we are continuing a wonderful legacy for this community. It is an essential service for our community because it gives young infants a head start in life," said CEO of Siouxland Community Health Center Mari Kaptain-Dahlen. "Where they've had good care, they're healthy babies and they can be productive members of our community." The Crittenton Center will continue to provide other services to women and children in the area.
