Health Commissioner Rolls Out Mobile Health Unit

GOSHEN – Orange County Health Commissioner Dr. Alicia Pointer and her staff unveiled the new Mobile Health Unit with a ribbon cutting on Monday, April 24th on Main Street.
Deputy County Executive Harry Porr and Legislators Pete Tuohy and Janet Sutherland also attended the event.

“One of the Health Department’s main goals is to find innovative ways of connecting with and serving residents,” Pointer said. “With our Mobile Health Unit, we can reach residents wherever they might be; at senior centers, schools, or community events.”

The “Health Grows Here” van will travel throughout the County, providing testing, immunizations, health screenings, outreach, and other services. The mobile unit is handicapped accessible and was funded through a federal grant.

“The Health Department’s Mobile Health Unit will help ensure that residents throughout Orange County have access to important health screenings, immunizations, and treatment,” Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus said. “It will be an asset to health care delivery in our communities and will address a variety of health issues, including prevention and education. Dr. Pointer and I share the priority of keeping County residents as healthy as possible and the “Health Grows Here” van will immensely help.”
