At Elica Health Centers we are about to embrace a unique approach to transcend barriers, penetrate access-to-healthcare issues and provide the best care possible. Coming soon to EHC is a 40 foot-long, state-of-the-art mobile medical vehicle (MMV) that will go where the patients are, to underserved neighborhoods in the Sacramento region as part of our Health on Wheels program.

At Elica Health Centers we are about to embrace a unique approach to transcend barriers, penetrate access-to-healthcare issues and provide the best care possible. Coming soon to EHC is a 40 foot-long, state-of-the-art mobile medical vehicle (MMV) that will go where the patients are, to underserved neighborhoods in the Sacramento region as part of our Health on Wheels program.

Elica Health Centers’ successful application for funds from the Affordable Care Act’s competitive Grant for School-Based Health Center Capitol (SBHCC) program has resulted in the much-anticipated delivery of the custom-made vehicle. The two, fully functional exam rooms contained in the MMV, along with doctors and medical professionals and the latest technology for electronic medical record keeping, will act as a community clinic on wheels. To start, the Health on Wheels MMV will roll into the parking lots of various San Juan Unified School District elementary schools on a regular basis.

Each of the five schools to be served are composed of diverse populations identified as Title 1 and have at least 84 percent of their student population on free and reduced lunches. Only between 30-40 percent of the students at the schools are identified in the healthy fitness zone for body composition on the California fitness exam.

Elica Health Centers’ Health on Wheels mobile unit will be a welcomed addition to the critical and growing needs of the low income and underserved populations of its service area. We can’t wait until it gets here.

EHC is already a leading access point for comprehensive primary care services for Sacramento’s most vulnerable populations, and provides excellent healthcare at two clinic locations in the Sacramento area, is a referral agency to local hospitals, and acts as a patient/provider conduit between its community friends, a network of healthcare specialists and a variety of benefit programs. And with the arrival of the Health on Wheels MMV, we see our work as just beginning.
