Oregon

Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital Mobile Health Unit, providence.org 541-387-6318
The Providence Mobile Health Unit provides quality health care services to the most vulnerable people in our community, the uninsured and underserved Hood River County Residents.

Providence Hood River’s Mobile Health Unit (MHU) project was developed from the results of a countywide community needs survey Providence Hood River conducted in the fall of 2004. The most pressing need the survey pointed to was access to healthcare for over 30% of the county’s residents. They either did not know how to get basic health care or didn’t think they could afford it. “Many had little or no insurance, others had no transportation and others did not know how to access primary health care,” said hospital’s mission integration and spiritual care director, Gary Young. “We decided that if people couldn’t get to the care they need, Providence needed to take health care to them.”

The Mobile Medical Unit received the highly prized Providence 2006 Mission Leadership Award. It is given to Providence programs that make a pay special attention to poor and vulnerable members of the community. The award was presented to Hood River’s “Mission in Motion” team at Providence Health & Services’ annual leadership conference at Skamania Lodge in April 2007.
