Mobile Medical Unit Health Services

North Country HealthCare offers medical services in Coconino & Mohave County on their mobile medical unit. The mobile medical unit, or MMU, is a Sprinter van that has been modified to serve as an exam room. The back of the van houses an exam chair and everything the provider and medical assistant need to complete a regular medical appointment.

Mobile medical units allow primary care providers, like North Country HealthCare, to offer easier access to healthcare for special populations who might otherwise have barriers to getting to a doctor’s office. For many patients there are a number of different reasons that make it difficult to get to the doctor, such as lack of transportation, or being at school or work during the week. The mobile medical unit  brings the care directly to those who need it!

What services are offered?

Providers can offer the same basic medical care you’d expect at a regular doctor visit in a clinic setting. If a patient needs more advanced medical care than what the van is equipped to handle, the patient would be transferred to another medical facility. The services available in the unit include:

  • Primary care
  • Management of acute and chronic conditions (asthma, diabetes, etc.)
  • Urgent care for sudden illness or injury
  • Immunizations
  • Labs & X-rays
  • Testing and vaccines

Where can patients access the MMU?

The MMU in Mohave County is currently serving patients at the Kingman Area Food Bank, as well as the small, rural communities of Meadview and Yucca.

The MMU that is based in Flagstaff treats patients weekly at Flagstaff Shelter Services, thanks to long-standing contract with the shelter. The MMU staff also treats patients at Summit High School every week, what is known as school-based health services. It is also available for pop-up clinics throughout the year, and makes regular appearances at events in the community.
