Public Service Announcement from LeFlore County Health Department
The LeFlore County Health Department (LCHD) has been experiencing overwhelming calls which has tied up phone lines, making it very difficult for people to get in touch for services. Normally, when an individual calls the main health department number, it asks for you to input an extension, if you already know the extension, or it asks you to press 0 or stay on the line for assistance. Currently, if you do the latter, 9 times out of 10, the call disconnects, which can prove to be very frustrating.
If a professional is needing to contact LCHD for referral purposes, or a family is in need of contacting us to set services up, they may reach us at 918-647-8601 ext. 228. This is Laurie Ragan’s extension and she has volunteered to field calls for any Child Guidance service.
These services would include: developmental screenings and assessments for children birth to 8 yrs old, parent education and support, mental health and behavioral health consultations and therapy to children 4-13 yrs old, infant massage classes, and hearing screenings for children birth to 13 yrs.
We are truly sorry for inconvenience and at this time, we do not know how long our system will be overwhelmed.
