Lutheran HealthCare offers HIV/AIDS primary and specialty care through its Special Care Immunology Services (SCIS) program, which provides culturally sensitive, comprehensive HIV/AIDS medical and social services. For more information, please click here.
Lutheran Family Health Centers offer confidential HIV counseling and testing at all the sites. If you are HIV positive, you can get treatment through our Special Care Immunology Services Program that may help you live a longer, healthier life. If you are not positive, you can learn how to stay that way. Best of all, you can get peace of mind.
LFHC uses the OraQuick Advance Rapid HIV-1/2 Antibody Test, which requires only a drop of blood taken from a finger prick or a simple swab of your mouth. The test provides results within 20 minutes enabling you to find out your results during the same visit. It is over 99% accurate!
