Healthy Families. Healthy Communities.
By travelling beyond our clinic walls, the Community Health Department drives our Healthy Families Healthy Community Mobile Clinic into underserved areas of Spring Branch and West Houston to improve access to high-quality, culturally sensitive, and affordable healthcare. By serving uninsured and under-insured individuals facing barriers to healthcare services, the Mobile Clinic provides health screenings, wellness checks and education about health issues, including social and environmental factors that can affect health.
Outreach and education in underserved areas contribute to early detection of the risk factors for health problems, lowering disease rates, reducing healthcare costs, and enhancing the quality of life for people living these neighborhoods. When patients are equipped with good information, they not only can improve their own health and wellness, but they can directly impact their families and contribute to a healthier community. The Mobile Clinic improves access to care, increases the use of preventive services, and increases awareness of the importance of prevention in order to overcome such barriers as the lack of health insurance, cost, and transportation, thereby bolstering prevention and chronic disease management and so reduce overall costs of the healthcare system.
Mobile Clinic staff can schedule an appointment for each patient based on their chief complaint or the health education provided, referring patients to the SBCHC clinic location most convenient for them.
