FHN’s mobile medical unit is a mission driven project that will assist in the integration of high quality, comprehensive health care services in the communities of Cortland and contiguous counties. Essential health care services will be provided by an FHN care team and offers the unique opportunity to deliver accessible health care by traveling to the patient, rather than the patient traveling to an FHN health center. This level of accessibility is unmatched to anything that is currently being offered in our region.
With a heavy focus on underserved communities in the Central New York region, FHN has identified locations where we can make an impact on the health outcomes of the residents through the utilization of our mobile medical unit. As a safety-net provider, FHN proudly organizes and delivers a significant level of health care and other needed services to uninsured, Medicaid, and other vulnerable populations who have limited means for transportation and experience various barriers to accessing health care. FHN aims to meet the needs of all patients, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
Our 40-foot, (2) exam room, mobile medical unit will allow FHN to effectively and efficiently provide services including, but not limited to:
- Routine check-ups and physicals
- Well child exams and sports physicals
- Blood work
- Screenings, diagnosis, and treatment/management of chronic conditions
- Direct coordination of care and health education
- Insurance enrollment by referral
- COVID testing and vaccination
