San Ysidro Health Center and Northgate González Markets host mobile medical units dedication ceremony and community Open House Friday, October 11, 2013
State-of- the-art Mobile Medical Units Link the Community to Health Services
San Ysidro Health Center celebrates the inauguration of its new fleet of state-of-the art mobile medical units, known as The Healthy Steps Program, at Northgate González Markets. The Dedication Ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. with tours of the mobile units, a mini health fair, plus education and enrollment assistance for the historic Affordable Care Act and Covered California™ —the new marketplace for affordable, private health insurance. The ribbon-cutting speakers’ program will commence at 10:20 a.m.
The Healthy Steps Program is one of SYHC’s premiere outreach programs connecting vulnerable families to a permanent medical home for essential health services. Last year, 3,000 patients were treated on the mobile medical units and connected with continual medical, dental and behavioral health care at one of SYHC’s ten clinics.
