Mobile Opioid Outreach Highlights
Mobile Clinics Fill the Void in Opioid Outreach
COVID-19 may be top of mind, but the opioid epidemic continues to rage, killing 140+ Americans every day. Progressive communities and healthcare systems are turning to new approaches, like innovative custom mobile health units from Winnebago Specialty Vehicles, for answers.
Those struggling with opioid addiction often reside in "healthcare deserts", underserved areas with little to no access to care. The federal government now designates nearly 80 percent of rural America as “medically underserved.” As a result, not only have opioid deaths increased year over year, but life expectancy has decreased. For the last 3 years, and for the first time in nearly 70 years, life expectancy in the US is going down.
An Effective Approach
Custom-configurable mobile health units from Winnebago Specialty Vehicles provide a proven, cost-effective solution to tackle the problem where it occurs, and allow providers to serve multiple locations. And, as Winnebago custom-builds each mobile health unit to address the program's specific needs, the possibilities for providing onboard health services are virtually endless.
