Caring for all in our community
St. Joseph's CareVan is a 48-foot mobile health clinic offering free health services to people in our community who do not have health insurance and access to care. Staffed with a health care provider, a nurse and a clerk, our mobile health services are available to treat most minor, urgent health care needs.
The CareVan treats acute problems such as fever, earache, upper respiratory infections, infections, sore throat, cold, flu and other illnesses. The services include screenings, health education, referral services, medical diagnoses and treatment. Please note that this clinic does not offer treatment for chronic care services such as high blood pressure and diabetes. We do offer screening services for blood pressure and diabetes two times a month, see our monthly schedule for dates.
If the problem can't be treated at the CareVan or requires ongoing treatment, the mobile clinic staff will refer the patient to a community physician or to one of the area's many excellent facilities.
(note: the CareVan will be closed on Mondays in the month of August).
