Mobile health clinics help reduce barriers to healthcare

Back to all News

Community Health Northwest Florida is excited to be on the road.

How people receive healthcare in the country has changed a lot over the last decade. As the healthcare system continues to evolve, it is important to understand and appreciate the role of mobile health providers.

The more than 2,000 mobile clinics that are an integral part of the healthcare system help ensure access to care for millions and advance health equity.

During the summer, Community Health’s mobile clinic provided back-to-school physicals and shots for more than 70 children residing on Area Housing Commission campuses.

At least once a week, the mobile dental clinic visits an Escambia County school to provide dental checkups for students.

Our mobile health units remove the need for patients to travel to a clinic, bringing the clinic to them instead. It’s a win-win situation for all involved in the transmission of services to those who need it most.

Here’s the list of Community Health Northwest Florida Medical Mobile Units visits in March:

  • Wednesday, March 6, Alfred Washburn Center (homeless service), 9 to 2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 13, Attucks Court  (Area Housing Commission), 11 to 3 p.m.
  • Thursday, March 14, Westminster Village (Senior retirement), 11 to 3 p.m.
  • Wednesday, March 20, Alfred Washburn Center, 8 to 2 p.m.

When it comes to healthcare and serving our community, it’s good to see that Community Health Northwest Florida mobile clinics are on the road again!
