On October 23, 2019, J.C. Lewis Primary Health Care Center, Inc. launched its new mobile unit. The new mobile unit will bring quality, affordable health care to consumers living in Savannah, Georgia, focusing on the underserved and homeless.
The unit will bring health care services to those who can’t get to a physician’s office. Services will include general primary medical care, pediatric exams, preventative care, HIV testing, and behavioral health assessments, among other services. The goal is to help the homeless who do not have regular access to health care. Consumers with insurance and access to health care services may also be served by the mobile unit.
