Baptist Health Richmond is broadening its mobile clinic services.

Baptist Health Richmond is expanding its mobile healthcare clinic services to better serve those in need in the community. The mobile clinic, which already has a presence in Richmond, has added another stop to its route in order to reach more individuals who may face barriers to accessing healthcare.

Sara Stringfield, Director of Community Health and Engagement at Baptist Health Richmond, explained that the mobile clinic is taking primary care services directly to individuals who may otherwise struggle to receive medical care. The clinic is now stationed at Spark Ministries in downtown Richmond, a community outreach organization that serves as a resource hub for those in need of various services such as housing, insurance, food stamps, and healthcare.

Felisha Centers, representing Spark Ministries, noted that the mobile clinic’s presence at their location is extremely beneficial for clients who may be facing challenges in accessing healthcare. Patients visiting the mobile clinic will have the opportunity to see a provider for wellness visits, treatment for illnesses such as stomachaches and pink eye, and receive vaccinations if needed.

Baptist Health Richmond identified a need in the community and has taken steps to address it by extending their mobile clinic services to different locations. In addition to Spark Ministries, the mobile clinic has also been serving at Madison Home and God’s Outreach Madison County Food Bank. The mobile clinic will now be available at Spark Ministries on East Main Street in Richmond every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. This expansion of services demonstrates Baptist Health Richmond’s commitment to providing accessible healthcare to all members of the community.
