Health care on the go

Seven people in front of Mobile Health Unit at ribbon cutting.

This customized van is staffed by medical professionals bringing healthcare to the community where they need it and when they need it. Everyone is welcome, including those uninsured or with employer insurance, Medicare and Medicaid. Children under the age of 18 must be present with a parent or guardian to receive medical care. There is no cost for any service and no appointment necessary. The MHU focuses on providing free care to those most in need in the Rockford area including underserved populations and high poverty areas. Services encompass, but are not limited to, acute health care needs/basic first aid, prevention programs, intervention strategies, health education materials and referrals to health services and community resources/programs. The Mobile Health Unit (MHU) is a collaborative partnership between UW Health, City of Rockford Health & Human Services, Rockford Fire Department and Molina Healthcare.
