Mobile Health Outreach Ministry

The St. Vincent’s Mobile Health Outreach Ministry brings fully staffed doctors-offices-on-wheels to areas of the community where these services are needed the most. It is the only mobile provider of free acute and preventive medical care in Northeast Florida.

  • Treating chronic illnesses like asthma, hypertension and diabetes
  • Treating common ailments like respiratory infections, nutritional problems

Who We Treat

The Mobile Health Outreach Ministry mainly focuses on three areas where there is the most need in our community:

  • The Rural Outreach Ministry serves people who work in the agricultural fields of Putnam and St. Johns Counties, including migrant workers and their children. 
  • The Urban Outreach Ministry reaches out to the working poor, the homeless and their families in the urban neighborhoods of Duval, Clay and Nassau Counties. 
  • The Pediatric Outreach Ministry provides children and teens with access to medical care by going to 23 middle and high schools throughout Duval County.
