Mobile clinic

I see mobile clinics like this only on two types of occasions. They go to large companies with health care benefits for their employees for scheduled annual physical examinations—more convenient than having employees go to clinics and hospitals and taking the whole day off for it. And they're also hired for big events with lots of people in venues without their own clinics. They're usually stationed in the parking lot, like this one was.

I've seen mobile clinics like that before, sometimes they do blood drives, flu shots or blood tests.

Regarding your question on my blog USC (Which has been my favorite college football team since 1974) is less than twenty miles from Long Beach.

Great idea. I haven't seen one in the states, but I am sure we have them somewhere.

Mo said...

A good idea. I think they might have them here too

Dina said...

Nice idea. Pretty too.
The closest thing Israel has to that is Magen David mobile blood donor units.
BTW, is your country celebrating a feast day today?

Smart idea, that I think some here in Norway, should copy. Nice blue design on the bus! ;-)

Frank said...

Great design, colors and graphics. It's very smart to schedule these for big companies. It does save lots of time.

Fortunately buses will soon be used for flu epidemic

Great idea - saves time and natural resources! Good to have those around! Flexibility and mobility!

When we lived in Fort Lauderdale, we had Humana health insurance for awhile...but they did not provide mobile physicals! I think that is a great idea!

Lovely photo, Hilda!

Leif Hagen said...

Great snap! Smart idea for employees! Humana is the name of one of our health insurance companies here - ironic!

I have seen similar "mobile clinics" here. Sometimes at community events or large business happenings. Great idea.

c'est une bonne idée et cela permet de mieux protéger les employés , mais il faudrait que cela soit accessible a tout le monde
it is a good idea and it allows to protect better the employees, but it would be necessary that it is approachable has everybody

I have seen something like this here at events or for some awareness campaign.

The mobile clinic is a great idea for health checkups at work. Saves a lot of time and money.

I think this is a marvelous idea. I don't know why we don't have someting like this over here in the States.

havent seen this one yet. i wish more of this will be available soon specially to the remote areas.

Pam said...

Isn't it a wonderful idea for them to where the people are. The only ones I see here are for donating blood.

lunarossa said...

I agree with the above comments. I think this is a fantastic and useful idea and I wish other countries would follow this initiative. All the best. Ciao. A.

A hospital on wheels. Pretty snazzy.

Halcyon said...

Wonderful idea! I remember seeing mobile dentist's offices when I was in Brazil. It's a funny sight if you're not used to it.

John said...

sympa le concept !
belle initiative

Lois said...

I've never seen one here before, but I think it is a great idea!

It's a good idea. Makes a lot of sense.

In Sydney, we have ones that collect blood for the red cross and they also do mobile breast-cancer screenings for free.

It is such a shame that often this kind of thing is on a user-pays basis.

I dream of a world where essential and preventative health-care as well as quality education is offered for free.

But hey, I AM a dreamer.

Humana is also a huge health care plan in southeastern US, like Florida.

Cool medi-bus!
