Banner Health has launched a new program to get a Mobile Health Unit to schools. The “Banner Children’s Healthmobile” will travel throughout the Valley to provide primary care to underinsured and uninsured children.
The “Banner Children’s Healthmobile” is a licensed outpatient treatment center that will operate just like a mobile doctor’s office, offering children up to 21 years of age treatment for health problems, physicals for camp or sports, and routine annual check-ups.
Walk-ins are accepted at the mobile clinic, but reservations are preferred. To make a reservation, call 480-412-6344.
Children from across the Valley can visit the mobile clinic, which is a licensed outpatient treatment center, for concerns ranging from earaches to neurological conditions. A parent or guardian must be present.”
Banner Health has organized 2 events as part of the “Banner Children’s Healthmobile” Open House. The events are free and run from 10am to 1pm. At both events there will be games, a bouncy castle, music, healthy activities, healthy food and a Coloring area. Children can participate and enter the Coloring Contest. Each Saturday a winner will be picked and the winning Coloring Page will be reproduced and hang in the unit. Great way to encourage art and health!
Last Saturday, I participated helping the children in the Coloring Area at the Banner Ironwood Medical Center in Queen Creek. This week’s we were going to be Banner Estrella Medical Center in Glendale. This event has been cancelled due to unusually heavy rain here in the Valley. I’ll keep you posted if and when it gets rescheduled.
