Kadlec Community Resource Desk

The Kadlec Community Resource Desk (KCRD) assists individuals and families who are in need of support to get connected to resources in their community, specifically as it relates to Social Determinants of Health. This free and confidential service is open to everyone. There will be two Kadlec Community Resource Desks, the primary desk will be located within the Kadlec Neurological Resource Center (KNRC) Library within the Kadlec Healthplex. When hospital visitor restrictions are lifted due to COVID19, we will add a second KCRD location at Kadlec Hospital. In collaboration with the existing Kadlec Neurological Resource Center Library, anyone seeking assistance with resources will also have access to support groups and educational programs. When necessary, especially during strict social distancing guidelines such as COVID19 "Stay Home" guidelines, these resources will be available by phone, virtually through an online video platform and on the Kadlec website. KNRC Library is under the umbrella of Kadlec's Community Health department. The KCRD project is a joint effort between the Community Health (CH) Department, Providence St. Joseph Health Community Health Investment (CHI), and Kadlec's Ambulatory Care Management (ACM) team. A benefit of this collaboration is that ACM employees who are staffing the KCRD at Kadlec Regional Medical Center (KRMC) are bilingual in Spanish/English. The CH and CHI team members and the ACM team members will be able to collaborate to provide the best information available to those served by the KCRD library.
