Mobile Medical Vans
Smoking, high-fat diets, stress and other risk factors for chronic health conditions are common in the homeless population. Compounding the situation are high rates of mental illness and mistrust of institutions, which can make delivering healthcare the homeless a challenge. That’s why our mobile medical vans meet patients on the street, where they live, and our staff earns their trust with compassionate care.
Our mobile medical vans visit strategic sites across New York City five days a week, delivering free primary care, regardless of the patient’s insurance status. Our doctors and nurse practitioners provide physical checkups, vaccinations, HIV tests, basic medications, and treatment for common chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and asthma. We offer all our uninsured patients assistance with the insurance enrollment process.
