The Mobile Health Clinic is a program to help meet the medical needs of people in the community. The program is a partnership between Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Mobile Health Clinic (MHC), a service of BestHealth For Business, several community-based organizations, and faith communities. The MHC provides medical, nursing, nutrition, cancer screenings, and health education services to both adults and teens who are uninsured in underserved communities.
Adults and teens who do not have health insurance can receive a wide range of services, including preventative care, care for minor illnesses, and management of chronic health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and asthma. COVID-19 testing for people without health insurance who have symptoms of COVID-19 is also provided at no cost. Health education, nutrition coaching in partnership with the Winston Lake YMCA, no-cost lab services, and referrals to specialists will be provided, if needed.
To improve the health of the medically underserved communities in our region by providing premier, community-informed health care, and by providing appropriate access to health care services.
Partnering with communities to achieve healthy populations, one individual at a time. View all of our Community Partners
