University of Miami Health System unveils new mobile medical van

MIAMI (WSVN) - The University of Miami Health System has unveiled its new state-of-the-art, on-the-go, mobile medical van.

The pediatric department’s new unit was designed to provide free medical care to thousands of uninsured children in neighborhoods across Miami-Dade County.

“So the services we provide include well-visits, sports physicals,” Dr. Lisa Gwynn said. “We take care of children who have chronic healthcare needs. We provide immunizations. Basically, it’s a one-stop shop that will allow children to get all the care that they need just as they would in a regular pediatrics’ office.”

The Children’s Health Fund and several local contributors helped make the mobile unit possible.
