WIHD to Debut Mobile Medical Clinic

The Westchester Institute for Human Development, a longtime BCW member, will debut a mobile medical truck next month.

The Mobile Medical Clinic will provide primary care, podiatry, occupational therapy, laboratory testing, and vaccinations to people with disabilities living in group residential programs throughout Westchester and the Hudson Valley. The vehicle is the size of a large food truck, and it will be wheelchair accessible.

In a statement, the WIHD stated that people with disabilities living in group residential programs often miss appointments at health care centers because of inadequate transportation and limited driver staffing.

The mobile clinic is expected to serve nearly 40 group residential programs. WIHD expects to provide 1,000 healthcare visits with the mobile clinic within the first year.

The vehicle will debut at a ceremony on Oct. 18 at WIHD’s headquarters in Valhalla.
