Mobile free clinic provides care for the uninsured
The Bon Secours Care-A-Van provides free, bilingual, general medical services to uninsured adults and children throughout the region. Community partners, including free clinics, local health agencies, and numerous faith-based community organizations, collaborate with Bon Secours to provide the free services.
The mobile clinic offers routine evaluations, treatment of common acute illnesses, sports physicals, children's health insurance enrollment, and health education services. Care-A-Van services are designed to provide vital medical care in a timely manner to those who need it – a free clinic on wheels. Patients with medical conditions that are beyond the team's scope of care are referred to another care setting.
In December, the Care-A-Van is visiting the following Newport News locations. Registration begins each day at 8:30 a.m. and continues until the clinic is full. Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis.
To learn more about Care-A-Van services please call Bon Secours Care-A-Van at 757-889-CARE (2273) or go online to Care-A-Van.
