    RKM Primary Care is our oldest location and was opened in 1999, not long after Dr. Richard Kell Munson retired from over 40 years of practice in Clinton. Family Nurse Practitioners Ginger Hunt and Darie Gilliam shared Dr. Munson’s passion for providing health care to the rural community that would otherwise have to drive many miles to access care.  With this in mind, they wanted to honor his years of service by making the clinic his namesake- thus RKM. RKM Primary Care opened April 30, 1999, moved to a new, larger clinic in 2003, and received federal funding in 2005 while doing all within the organization’s power to assist those in desperate need after hurricane Katrina. It is the main clinic within the Primary Care Providers for a Healthy Feliciana, Inc. network and houses the administrative offices for the organization. From the humble beginnings of the 800 square foot converted Jim Walter Home, RKM Primary Care Clinton now occupies a state of the art 20,000 square foot clinic facility which was completed in March 2010.

    The main clinic offers primary medical care services, dental services, and mental health services. The majority of medical services are provided by four nurse practitioners. Dental services are provided primarily by Dr. Adam Town, DDS, Dental Director.  Dr. Phillip Griffin, DDS provides services at the main clinic location when school is not in session in East Feliciana Parish. Behavioral Health Services are provided by Dr. Gary Chaney, DNP along with a staff of social workers.

  • Child and Adolescent Bereavement Services

     

    Children grieve differently than adults do. Because children are less able to express their feelings, their pain may go unnoticed by family members and loved ones. When a teen experiences a loss, an additional burden is added to his/her already complex life. However, a child’s unresolved grief can have profound effects. Later in life, unresolved grief can lead to difficulties with trust and problems with intimate relationships. Substance abuse and dependency problems can sometimes result from a person’s inability to fully cope with an early loss experience. The children and teens we work with have lost a loved one through an accident, illness, homicide, or suicide. Many children suddenly feel different from their friends, and all family members feel isolated by their loss. We prefer to meet with children and their family members as soon as possible following the death. We have found that early intervention diminishes the severity of trauma and increases the ability of families to positively cope with their loss. We also want children and caregivers to meet other bereaved families and learn that they are not alone. Our bereavement program includes counselor facilitated peer groups for children and adolescents, with concurrent groups for caregivers. Through discussion, art projects, books, and shared experiences, the sessions provide all participants with opportunities to express their feelings and begin the process of deal with their loss. Our primary goal is to meet the unique needs of each family who comes to us for services. We strive to help families learn to support each other throughout the grief process.

    When families contact Child & Adolescent Bereavement Services (CABS) at RKM Primary Care:

    • A CABS counselor will schedule and conduct an initial intake with the parent or guardian.
    • A collaborative evaluation of child/family needs will be discussed in order to make recommendation for group and/or individual counseling for the child and family members.

    Anyone interested in these services can contact the School Based Health Clinic or RKM Primary Care, Behavioral Health, at (225) 683-1320 and learn more about the program or make an appointment. Hours are: Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm

In July of 2005, the RKM Dental Clinic opened its doors with a full-time dentist, providing a full range of dental services to the public as well as preventive services in the school health centers. In June of 2008, a full-time dental hygienist was added to the dental team to provide cleanings and sealants 2 days a week at the school sites and 2 days a week at the RKM Dental Clinic.

    Dr. Town’s Tips for Healthy Teeth

    “Eating Sweets throughout the day lowers the pH level in your mouth and promotes tooth decay,” according to Dr. Adam Town. If you are going to indulge in your love for sweets, brush your teeth as soon as possible. Chewing sugar-free gum helps prevent tooth decay by increasing the salivary flow, which helps wash away the acids in the mouth that help break down food. This is especially true for children. The chewing action also helps you scrub away some of the unwanted plaque left on teeth after eating. This is not a substitute for brushing and flossing but does help when one is unable to brush after meals. Don’t forget to get regular check-ups and cleanings. The ADA recommends check-ups at least once every six months.
