Mobile medical clinic vans are used by many different groups, including:
Indigenous and First Nations communities
In many Indigenous and First Nation communities, patients are located too far from a health centre to have access to basic health care. Mobile medical vans are used to visit patients at their homes or nearby locations.
Vans are used for mental health counselling, sexual health programs, and other services that require a culturally-appropriate approach.
Housing and homeless societies
Initiatives that work to end homelessness need a way to address their client’s needs right where they are. Vans equipped with a private space give these programs a safe working environment in underserved places. Social workers can have an on-demand treatment space, with supplies and personnel to best serve their clients.
Addictions services are often offered in traditional facilities. However, mobile medical vans provide a safe, private, approachable space for persons in need to get addictions help without the stigma of going into a clinic.
Non-emergency response services
Mobile medical vans offer a medical space for non-urgent medical needs. Services such as bloodwork, physical exams, first aid, and stretcher transportation are all possible in a custom mobile medical van.
Industrial safety companies
Industrial safety companies that respond to workplace accidents require a mobile treatment space that carries the supplies, equipment, and personnel needed.
