The 25-foot clinic on wheels is the district’s second mobile unit, meant to improve healthcare access to underserved communities. 

The unit which will be operated by the 'Desert Physicians Medical Group' offers a mobile pharmacy, vaccinations, pre-natal care, and more.  

Those services will be delivered to all valley residents, from farmworkers, infants, and the homeless population.  

“We unveiled our first mobile medical unit a couple of years ago, and it's been very successful," said Chris Christensen, CEO of Desert Healthcare District and Foundation. "Being that over 8,000 patients have been seen with that medical unit. The second unit is complementary to the first unit and will provide additional services to the community. Being able to take these services to residents that cannot make it to other clinics on their own.”

It will start providing services to residents across the valley starting June 1st.  

Desert Physicians Medical Group is also slated to open a brick-and-mortar health clinic on May 31st.
