MOBILE MEDICAL CLINIC: The Florence Nightingale Express

Mobile Medical Clinic

The Visiting Nurse Association of Florida’s mobile medical clinic, the Florence Nightingale Express is a 38-foot self-sustaining clinic on wheels conceived in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina. VNA of Florida created its mobile medical clinic to give nurses a safe and effective way to provide care, even in dire situations. The clinic’s mission is to assist with desperately needed primary health care services, disease prevention, health promotion and education in the communities we serve.

Since its conception, the Florence Nightingale Express has:

  • Visited community outreach centers monthly to provide free healthcare
  • Managed patients’ chronic illnesses
  • Conducted back-to-school and sports physicals for school-aged children
  • Provided free memory screenings for those experiencing early signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia
  • Traveled across the state to participate in blanket and clothing drives
  • Teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to build shelter for homeless
  • Driven over 110,000 miles

 

The Florence Nightingale Express runs entirely on donations from the Visiting Nurse Foundation, VNA of Florida’s charitable arm of the organization. The mobile medical clinic helps our Foundation continue its mission to provide free health services to those in need.
