Growing families deserve a healthy start.

Register for your free nurse visit here.

Are you a resident of Henderson or Polk County? Did you deliver at Pardee or Advent Hospital? If so, you are eligible for a FREE Family Connects visit with a registered nurse! Please fill out the following form to register, and someone from our team will reach out to schedule your visit within 2 business days.

Our home visits are usually conducted virtually around the time your baby is 3 weeks old, and they will take up to two hours. The visit will include a health assessment for mom and baby, parental guidance and answers to questions you may have about baby care or postpartum care, and referral to any services that your household may want or benefit from. After the visit, we mail you a family gift packet that includes information about any referrals we helped you make, helpful health information, an Ingles gift card, and a few other goodies. Then we'll follow up with you in a few weeks to make sure your referrals worked out for you and that everything is still going well for your growing family!
