ARC responded with emergency shelters, response vehicles, and supplies. More than 30,000 meals and 8,000 relief items went out to residents as they sought refuge in shelters or worked to repair their homes. Workers also helped connect affected residents to appropriate health care and disaster mental health services in their area.
As Medical Director of OSF St. Joseph Medical Center’s PromptCare, Dr. Lamont Tyler takes pride in the diverse array of services offered to all individuals on a walk-in basis.
