The Mobile Outreach Clinic is a highly flexible means of delivering health care to the medically under-served in low income neighborhoods and rural areas in and around Alachua County. The Mobile Clinic itself is a large bus containing two exam rooms, a laboratory and a waiting area. It is currently staffed by a registered nurse who can screen, refer, and provide case management.
The Mobile Outreach Clinic is in operation an average of four days per week (please consult our calendar on the home page for exact times and dates). The following are a few of the Mobile Outreach Clinic’s many community partners and what they provide to the program:
Alachua County Health Department provides a Physician’s Assistant and a staff member for conducting family planning services 3 days per week as well as training, supervision, lab support, supplies and needed follow up for screening for sexually-transmitted diseases.
CHOICES is a community based health plan for the working poor and uninsured which provides health education, primary care, screening, and referral services funded by local sales taxes. CHOICES and Alachua County are funding the basic operations (gas, insurance, driver) of the clinic.
Alachua County Library District allows the Mobile Outreach Clinic to park and operate out of the parking lots of the branch libraries. Librarians are trained in Alachua County to help underserved individuals complete online applications for services.
