Greenville Health System will launch a mobile health clinic housed in a 40-foot custom RV to target areas with high emergency room and EMS usage rates and reach patients who may not have transportation. The clinic will have three exam rooms and be staffed by a nurse practitioner, paramedic, program manager and business office representative.

The clinic will launch in February and initially visit five areas within the Parker, Berea, Gantt, Belmont and Greenville city fire districts, said Jennifer Snow, director of GHS Accountable Communities. Rather than the screening services or dental care provided by many mobile units, the GHS clinic will offer primary and acute care for patients on Medicare, Medicaid and who are uninsured, she said. The $467,000 unit was funded through Hollingsworth Funds and F.W. Symmes Foundation.
