Deaconess Health Check Mobile Health Care Van
Deaconess Health van
Access to comprehensive, quality health care is critical for maintaining health, preventing and managing disease, reducing unnecessary disability, and achieving health equity. Primary healthcare access also greatly reduces costly emergency room visits and inpatient care due to delaying treatment and a lack of preventative care.

For those who have little to no access to medical care other than the hospital emergency rooms, which increases the cost of care throughout the community and stress an already burdened system, the Deaconess Health Check Mobile Health Care Van is providing essential services.

The van makes regularly scheduled visits to area agencies, including Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul, to provide primary care services. The van is staffed by a nurse practitioner and medical assistants. Patients are treated regardless of ability to pay.
You can receive some of the available services in the Deaconess Health van by registering for our Community Health Fair on August 21.
