TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Hamilton Center, Inc. announced this week the implementation of a new mobile primary care clinic.
Grace Clinic Health Professional, a Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike supported by the federal government and Hamilton Center in Terre Haute, Ind., will be expanding the clinic’s services to outlying areas. The medically equipped mobile vehicle will reduce obstacles many people experience with lack of transportation to access medical care.
The mobile clinic, according to a news release, will provide health screenings, primary medical care and preventative care to children and adults.
Future expansion plans include COVID-19 testing and vaccinations at some of Hamilton Center’s 24 hour service sites, vaccine-related outreach and education, services to racial and ethnic minorities and homeless families and other vulnerable populations. The mobile clinic launch is slated for later this month.
Funded by the American Rescue Plan, a federal grant designed to help Americans recover from economic and health effects brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Grace Clinic’s new mobile services will accommodate a larger footprint and ease the struggles of many for whom a trip to see their provider is challenging.
“Improving access to care for those who find it difficult to get to a medical clinic is a driving force of this new program,” Melvin L Burks, CEO of Hamilton Center, Inc., said. “We are working to improve the overall health of our consumers and community.”
