A physician directs the program and provides medical care, while peer community health workers assist with a variety of resources.

The program serves patients in need of medical care to also access any needed mental health services including counseling, psychiatric medications, and chemical dependency treatment. Patients are linked directly to these resources at Strong Memorial Hospital.
