Caring for the vulnerable
The refugee and immigration crisis in the United States has prompted many concerned teams to action in providing support and help to those in need. Unfortunately, the Unaccompanied Children (UC) population is the most vulnerable group amid this human crisis. Medical Services are scarce, inferior and have been, on many occasions, an afterthought to the actual humanitarian efforts needed. The lack of experienced medical teams has resulted in failed medical treatment plans, patients having adverse effects on medical treatment, unnecessary delays in reunification, premature reunifications, and an incalculable backlog in the documentation of medical records in the UC Portal.
Divine was formed with a focus on elevating the medical services rendered to refugees, especially Unaccompanied Children (UC). The comprehensive policies set forth by the Office of Refuge and Resettlement require a team with experience and knowledge of those expectations. Therefore, Divine has assembled a team of Pediatricians, Advanced Practitioners, and nurses with twenty-plus years of experience in caring for UC's in ORR care.
Our team of experts understands the need not only to provide excellent medical care, but also to provide public health surveillance, expedite ancillary specialty medical referrals, collaborate with local and state government health authorities, and document comprehensive medical records in the UC Portal for the Division of Health of Unaccompanied Children (DHUC). Divine’s medical team is strongly committed to the timely and safe reunification of all Unaccompanied Children.
“The transition to your team’s medical services has been exceptional and has really made it extremely easy for our medical team!”
