MOBILE MEDICAL CLINIC: The Florence Nightingale Express

Mobile Medical Clinic

In 2006, the Florence Nightingale Express, the VNA’s mobile medical clinic, was founded as an extension of the Visiting Nurse Foundation. Its creation was  prompted by Hurricane Katrina.

The mission of the Florence Nightingale Express is to provide much needed health care, 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, the VNA’s charitable arm. The mobile medical clinic helps our Foundation continue its mission to provide free health services to those in need.
