Free Health Screenings at Lifestyle Festival & Cycling Expo
Arrowhead Medical Regional Center (AMRC) will have its Mobile Medical Clinic on site at The Amgen Tour of California Stage 6 Finish in Big Bear Lake as part of the Lifestyle Festival and Cycling Expo. Medical professionals will provide free screening services aboard its state-of-the-art Mobile Medical Clinic (MMC), a custom-built, 40-foot vehicle that that features two exam rooms, patient intake area and patient education center.
Visitors to the mobile unit during the Lifestyle Festival and Cycling Expo in Big Bear will have the opportunity to receive height and weight checks and screenings for blood pressure and blood sugar. In addition, information about the Medical Center’s Cancer Services will also be provided by a representative of that program.
MMC was implemented to provide new access points to basic health screenings/primary care and health education services throughout the County of San Bernardino. The MMC enables hospital personnel to reach deeper into remote areas of the county with limited access to medical services. ARMC has been using the MMC to conduct basic health screenings and for flu shot clinics and recently began providing primary care services in select areas of the county. Primary care services will expand to additional areas in 2012. The MMC continues to be a popular and valuable resource for health screenings throughout the year at various events in the county.
The mobile unit is the first healthcare vehicle of its kind to be deployed in the County of San Bernardino to provide screenings and primary care to select sites. For more information on ARMC’s mobile clinic, please call 909-580-1000.
