EPA awards Mobile Care, recognizes as a “leading community-level asthma care” provider.
What was Mobile Care was recognized for?
Mobile Care’s no-cost mobile clinic model enables families that struggle with cost and transportation barriers to still access care at their neighborhood school.
With the addition of video conferenced appointments for working parents, we are continuing to make it easier for children to get the care they need.
Care beyond the clinic
Asthma attacks can be triggered by things like mold, pollen, food allergies, and even certain household cleaners.
Mobile Care has a community health worker that helps families identify and remove their child’s triggers from their home.
Being cost effective
Mobile Care keeps kids healthier and in school instead of the ER or hospital.
For every dollar spent by Mobile Care on the Asthma Vans, we prevent 3 dollars in more costly ER and hospital visits. The EPA estimates that Mobile Care has saved the local health care system at least $156 million.
