Addressing the Urgent Needs of the Horsemen in the State of Illinois
A Wide Range Of
Health services provided to children of racetrack employees, RICF R.N. works closely with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) to ensure that all available vaccinations and services are available to all children.
For the past several years RICF has maintained a +90% compliance rate with immunization administration.
This means, through data collected by the IDPH, that RICF vaccinates practically all eligible children with all of their age appropriate immunizations. A superb accomplishment, especially when one considers the transient lifestyle of backstretch workers.
