Adena Health System this week unveiled its new mobile clinic for school-based health. The clinic will travel to partner school districts each month to assist with any medical emergencies that may arise, provide help to students in managing chronic health conditions, and offer other services to students in busy families who may otherwise have difficulty finding time to get to medical appointments.
The mobile clinic contains a pair of exam rooms and other amenities staffed by Adena Health providers who have volunteered to offer students a wide range of primary care services in a safe, clinical environment. The launch of a pilot program coinciding with the start of the new school year will involve five partner school districts: Adena, Huntington, Miami Trace, Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center, and Unioto. Plans call for the mobile clinic to be expanded to additional school districts in 2024.
