Starting Wednesday, families who can’t afford to take their kids to the doctor have a free option for medical care.
Banner Health’s mobile health unit will be traveling around the Valley four days a week serving needy families and giving those in more rural areas easier access to care.
The Banner Children’s Healthmobile has a fully outfitted patient room to provide child wellness checks, physicals and treatment for other health problems including strep tests, earaches and neurological concerns. The services are free of charge for uninsured children up to graduation.
The medical staff includes a nurse practitioner, bilingual medical assistant and an Emergency Medical Technician.
Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are suggested. A parent or guardian must be present.
- Mondays at Buckeye Elementary School, 210 South 6th St., Building 700, Buckeye (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
- Tuesdays at Vineyard Church North Phoenix, 6250 W. Peoria Ave., Glendale (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
