About the project...

The Harrison County Maternal and Child Health Project (MCH) has been serving Harrison County and neighboring communities for many years.  The Project provides family-related health services and little or no cost to a family based on their income.

 

MCH provides a wide range of services to its clients to assist them with their family's health care needs.  These services include annual exams, prenatal exams, birth control methods, screenings, and much more.  

 

Call us at 812-738-3237 and set up a free and confidential appointment to discuss your family's health care needs. 

 

This project is supported in part by Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant funds administered through the Indiana State Department of Health.
