Tens of thousands of Montgomery County residents – hailing from 100 countries and speaking 25 languages – lack health insurance. So Mobile Medical Care operates a network of nine low-cost health centers in fixed locations and on mobile vans. Created in collaboration with community partners and volunteer clinicians in the neighborhoods where patients live and work, the centers provide high quality medical care that is culturally sensitive and accessible. In addition to primary and preventive care, MobileMed also offers a weekly women’s clinic and two specialty clinics (Heart and Endocrine) in collaboration with NIH and Suburban Hospital. Patients receive free medications, referrals to exceptional pro-bono specialists, and donated diagnostic testing. Each year, MobileMed treats 4,500 patients in over 16,000 medical and behavioral health visits. In its 50-year history, not one patient has been turned away. Simply put, your support helps save lives.
Access to care has taken on a new meaning with the addition of tele-health, tele-therapy, enhanced triage, case management, curbside testing, free essential medications delivered to patients’ homes, and more. Primary care services are provided in English, Spanish, French, Korean, Amharic, Vietnamese, and Farsi. MobileMed has been able to stay open every weekday from 8:30am-5pm, with additional evening hours at several clinics. And although walk-in appointments are on hold for now, it still offers same-day visits for urgent issues.
