Clinic Details: Since 1992, the KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic (KMMC) has provided more than 44,000 patient visits to children and adolescents living in the underserved communities of the District of Columbia who are at risk and have poor access to comprehensive pediatric health care services. he mission of the KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic (KMMC) is to improve access for underserved children to comprehensive services necessary to achieve better health care. This mission is based on the belief that every child, regardless of his/her financial means, deserves high-quality, comprehensive, continuous health care, delivered in a respectful, caring and family centered environment—a "medical home." Our pediatric mobile clinic achieves this mission by delivering primary medical care to children, age birth to 21 years, directly in their neighborhoods at no direct cost to their caregivers. While providing primary medical care is our principle focus, we have incrementally expanded our programming to include mental health and social services, education, advocacy and hope to have ophthalmology services in the near future. Only by working as a professional team, can we hope to provide our patients with the services they need. As part of a larger institution of advanced education, our mission is also reflective of Georgetown University's commitment to educate "women and men to be responsible and active participants in civic life, and to live generously in service to others." The KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic is under the direction of the Community Pediatrics Program, which is part of the Department of Pediatrics at Georgetown University Hospital, a MedStar Health Partner. We are a not-for-profit 501(c) 3 program. The KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic staff is a dynamic team of healthcare professionals dedicated to providing quality services to children, adolescents and families. This team is truly greater than the sum of its parts, and includes doctors, nurses, social service providers and an administrative support team. Five days a week, the bright white KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic drives into federally designated health professional shortage areas (HPSAs) and offers comprehensive general pediatric health care services at five different sites and comprehensive adolescent health care services at a two additional sites. The first four sites are located near seven public housing areas with an estimated 2,000 underserved children. Our fifth site is located at an Emergency Homeless Shelter. Our fifth and sixth sites, which serves two public high schools with an estimated 1,800 students, is dedicated to providing comprehensive adolescent health care.
