Emergency Care Specialists: Helping the Community In and Out of the Hospital

Emergency room visits can become a part of life for the families Healthy Homes serves, especially those families who deal with severe asthma. Of the six million children in the US with asthma, about 1 in 6 will need emergency care. Dealing with the uncertainty of an asthma attack or any emergency can be upsetting and stressful; it’s beyond important to receive care that is trustworthy and helpful.

That’s where care providers like Emergency Care Specialists come in. ECS is a local group physicians, emergency medicine residents, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who provide emergency care to patients in West Michigan.

IAQ Overview

Indoor air quality can make a big difference in the health and quality of life for all people in the home. Some gases, like radon and carbon monoxide, are deadly. Other air quality issues like particulate matter, allergens and molds can also negatively impact occupant health and should be controlled. The Healthy Homes Coalition helps families learn simple steps to improve air quality and avoid deadly hazards.
