Dr. Lamont Tyler, a clinical physician, is the medical director of specialty physician services at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington, Illinois. In the business of saving lives, Dr. Lamont Tyler shares the same vision as the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross was established in 1881 by Clara Barton, a nurse and a humanitarian. Upon returning home from the Civil War, Barton campaigned for the establishment of a humanitarian organization to help people injured in war. For 23 years, Barton led relief efforts in the United States and overseas.
Today, the American Red Cross focuses its efforts on specific programs, such as services for veterans. The organization serves as a bridge between veterans and national resources to provide veterans the assistance they need.
Specifically, the Red Cross assists veterans in filing claims for benefits by coordinating with the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA). Members of the Red Cross also volunteer in military hospitals to assist veterans as they go through rehabilitation.
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.
