Baptist Health to debut mobile unit, provide services statewide

In Baptist Health’s 100th year, the health care organization is strengthening its ability to serve communities beyond medical center walls with the debut of a new mobile health unit.

The Baptist Health Mobile Health Unit will offer COVID-19 vaccines to help get more Arkansans vaccinated at stops across the state this year. Additionally, it will provide free health care services such as screenings and prevention education from Baptist Health’s team of caregivers.

“As Baptist Health looks ahead to the next 100 years, we remain focused on responding to changing healthcare needs by meeting people where they are,” said Troy Wells, president and CEO of Baptist Health. “Our new mobile health unit will enable us to bring free access to critical health and wellness tools in areas that might not otherwise be served, thanks to the generous support of donors and community.”
