Mobile Health Unit

ValleyCare's Mobile Health Unit provides accessible, culturally-sensitive health care in a nontraditional clinic setting. We wish to help members of our community (both insured and uninsured) gain access to traditional primary care. Under the supervision of the medical director, care is provided by a nurse practitioner and a medical assistant. Additional licensed health care practitioners are added as needed.

Our unit is equipped to handle drop-in care for nonemergency medical conditions, follow-up care and basic laboratory tests for the purposes of completing medical screening examinations.
