Loyola Mobile Medical Van
Arrives August 14, 2012
In 1998, Loyola decided that if children couldn't get to a clinic for health care, then we would go to them.
The Pediatric Mobile Health Unit of Loyola’s Ronald McDonald® Children’s Hospital.
The clinic on wheels was the first of its kind in the Midwest. Loyola nurses, physicians and staff run the facility for children who might not otherwise receive health care. They offer routine physical examinations, immunizations, health screenings, educational sessions, lab tests, nutrition education and asthma care. These programs have cut the number of school absences and emergency department visits.
Annually the Loyola Mobile Medical Van comes to Berkeley School District 87 to service the children in the area.
