CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinics


Vehicles for Care, A Movement for Health

The wheels of the first Mobile Clinic began rolling on Houston's streets nearly 22 years ago. Today, two Mobile Clinic vehicles provide care to as many as 20,000 people annually. These traveling clinics-on-wheels visit more than 300 locations in areas all across greater Houston and surrounding communities delivering high-quality healthcare to all ages, all races, and without regard to a patient's ability to pay.
