In recognizing the shift toward a continual rise in healthcare costs, Presbyterian Hospital is addressing the medical needs of our community to ensure quality care is accessible to all youth as they grow.
What is it?
The Novant Health Community Care Cruiser is a 40-foot mobile clinic that provides immunizations (vaccines) to un- and under-insured youth who cannot afford it.
The Cruiser is led by a medical director, nursing staff and social worker and visits identified underserved areas of the community to offer vaccines.
Why is it needed?
Nationwide, the workforce is suffering from a reduction or elimination of benefits. In fact, one in nine children in North Carolina lack health insurance, and more than 37,000 are on the list for subsidies.
The Cruiser is improving the health of our youth by immunizing children against preventable diseases.
How will it work?
Novant Health collaborates with interested parties to ensure the best possible resource is put into place.
The Cruiser works with places of worship, schools and other support groups to promote the clinic and provide easy access for youth who need its services.
Novant Health works with its Parish Nursing Program to establish strong working relationships in the communities we already serve. Through this collaborative effort, we believe we maximize our impact.
