HYDE – Beginning Aug. 11, Adagio Health’s brand-new mobile health unit will provide health and wellness services to residents of Clearfield County.
The mobile health unit will be stationed at the Clearfield County League on Social Services, 1505 Robinson Ave., Hyde, on the second Tuesday of each month. Appointments and walk-ins will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Mobile Health Unit is a 36-foot long vehicle equipped with a reception area, exam room, lab and restroom. Clinical staff include a certified registered nurse practitioner and two medical assistants.
On board, patients will be provided with a wide range of health care services along with referrals to other providers as needed.
Services are billed to insurance companies or Medicaid, and for patients who don’t have insurance or who are underinsured, reproductive health care is provided at low or no cost.
“We are proud to be expanding our presence in rural areas where access to health care can be limited,” said President and Chief Executive Officer BJ Leber.
“Now, those residents don’t have to drive long distances to access reproductive and preventive health care. Instead, Adagio Health is coming to them.”
Women, men and teens are eligible to receive services through Adagio Health Mobile Health. Services are confidential, and patients can expect to receive excellent care in a comfortable, welcoming setting. Special safety protocols are in place to keep patients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In additional to a modern and comfortable exam room, Adagio Health’s Mobile Unit offers an on-board lab for blood draws and screenings, and the entire vehicle is ADA compliant. A lift system for mobility assistance is available.
In addition to serving residents of Clearfield County, the unit will also travel to these Pennsylvania counties: Armstrong, Cameron, Clarion, Elk, Forest, Jefferson, McKean, Mercer, Potter, Venango and Warren.
Available services include: breast and cervical cancer screening, reproductive health care, birth control (dispensed on-site), pregnancy testing, STD testing and treatment, HIV testing, PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis to protect against HIV), infertility services, flu shots (beginning this fall), basic health screenings such as cholesterol and high blood pressure, adult immunizations and more. Reproductive health services are available regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
Mobile Health Unit appointments can be scheduled by calling 814-676-1811 or 1-800-215-7494.
