UnitedHealthcare And Bienvenidos Unveil New Community Mobile Health Clinic To Help Improve Access To Care In East Los Angeles

UnitedHealthcare and Bienvenidos today unveiled the new Community Mobile Health Clinic that will bring essential primary care health services to children and families in underserved communities in East Los Angeles.

The mobile clinic, made possible by a $41,000 grant by UnitedHealthcare, will be staffed by a physician or nurse practitioner to provide a range of health care services including primary care, vaccinations, health screenings and family-planning services.

“We thank UnitedHealthcare for partnering with Bienvenidos to fund this new mobile health clinic that will expand access to care for families in East Los Angeles,” said Ritchie Geisel, president and CEO, Bienvenidos. “The mobile unit will serve an area of Los Angeles where there is great need for preventive care and services, particularly among people who are most vulnerable, including young children.”

The mobile health clinic was unveiled at a community health fair today where hundreds of children, families and community leaders toured the mobile unit, received flu shots and health screenings for diabetes and hypertension, and checked their blood pressure and body mass index (BMI). Local health experts, along with UnitedHealthcare’s mascot Dr. Health E. Hound, provided tips on health, wellness and nutrition. Also in attendance were elected officials who joined Bienvenidos and UnitedHealthcare representatives for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“I have long fought to preserve and expand funding for Community Health Centers like Bienvenidos that provide essential access to better health for so many of my constituents. While the Affordable Care Act will offer greater access to insurance and care, it is our local health centers and their caregivers on the ground who will bring the promise of health care reform to fruition,” said U.S. Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard.

This is the first mobile clinic Bienvenidos will operate in the region, offering health care services at schools in the area – including Torres High School, Wilson High School and Garfield High School – where Bienvenidos already operates health clinics. The mobile clinic will also be available at other nearby middle and elementary schools.
