In addition to our quality primary and preventative health care services, OPHS offers several specialized medical services inducing:
School and Sports Physicals
It is important that children entering school have the best chance to succeed. The school physical provides an evaluation of the young student with the opportunity to assess the physical health and development of the child. Also, it gives our staff the opportunity to ensure that you child has been all of the immunizations they need to stay healthy. Oakland County is blessed with many good athletes and students and we are honored to help ensure they stay healthy by providing comprehensive physicals.
Immunizations are a proven and effective means of maintaining the health of at all stages of the life cycle, from infants to seniors. OPHS makes use of the Michigan Care Improvement Registry as well as evidenced based guidelines to deliver immunizations in the most effective manner possible.
The Infant Mortality rate in Oakland County amongst medically underserved populations is 6 times the county average. It is important that women that are pregnant know as soon as possible and that they are provided access to prenatal care and prenatal vitamins as soon as possible. OPHS offers pregnancy testing to community members at a discounted rate for those that do not have the ability to pay. In addition, OPHS wills assist these patients in finding an obstetrical care provider to insure the health of their newborn.
Employers have a keen interest in keeping their workforce healthy, this often begins with a pre-employment physical and OPHS is proud to offer this service to our community.
Continuing care at OPHS gives employees the support structure they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and when sickness does occur the means to get well and return to work sooner.
Women, Infants and Children (WIC)

The Women's Infant and Children is a state funded nutrition education and food program for pregnant women, children and their parents up to age five. OPHS is pleased to partner with the WIC program in Oakland County to provide this important resource to our community. A registered Dietitian provides counseling and education as well as healthy food Coupons to encourage proper nutrition during pregnancy and the formative years of childhood. In addition, OPHS provides monitoring for growth and development, screening for lead poisoning, anemia, growth problems, and nutritional needs.
