Shawna: 35 year mother of three
" I arrived at ChesPenn Health Services through a homeless shelter. I have three children and am an immigrant from South Africa living here with my husband. We went to the
emergency room because my two month-old daughter
had a fever and was not getting better. The hospital
treated her with antibiotics and sent us home, back to
the shelter, and told us to follow-up with ChesPenn
Health Services. Since my family currently has no
health insurance they told us this is the best place for
my family to receive the much needed health care
services. I was more than happy to follow-up the next
morning with the staff at ChesPenn. I was welcomed and the pediatrician was wonderful. They provided me, and my family with a medical home that will uarantee our health while we become acclimated with a new community."
