Founded in 1968, MobileMed's mission is to improve the health of low-income people who face the greatest barriers to care access. Our values include: Healthcare access for all; Quality services provided with compassion, respect and cultural sensitivity; Organizational excellence and integrity. We also provide patient education toward self-directed health management, improved health and a decrease in the need for Emergency Department medical care. We serve 6,000 people annually with the help of our dedicated staff and 200 volunteers. Hailing from more than 100 countries and speaking 25 languages, many of our patients suffer from one or more chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, obesity, high cholesterol, hepatitis, asthma, assorted allergies, orthopedic disabilities or cancer. All struggle with the reality of a community whose need for quality healthcare exceeds its capacity to deliver. Our clinics are conveniently located on mass transit lines and are available at fixed sites and on mobile medical vans at nine locations in Montgomery County (DC Metro Area). Both appointments and walk-in care are available. Community partnerships make it possible to reach underserved populations, and to provide diagnostics, integrated behavioral healthcare and specialty care.
