For more than 30 years the Mount Carmel Health Mobile Medical Coach has been providing free basic medical care to central Ohioans in need. Those with limited access to quality health care can come to a safe, convenient site near where they live to get checkups, receive needed vaccinations, get urgent healthcare, receive mental health counseling, and obtain referrals to community health programs. For more information about their schedule and services call 614-546-4200.
The 40-foot mobile medical coach visits nine sites in central Ohio on a rotating schedule. Inside this urgent care center on wheels are a family practice physician, nurse practitioner, registered nurses, medical technicians, bilingual case workers and administrators who provide the care and support these patients need most.
The Mobile Medical Coach is a vital part of Franklin County’s healthcare safety net, providing free quality care to 4,100 uninsured and under-insured patients last year alone.
