Ascension health providers from across North Florida will provide a free mobile health clinic to Bay County residents on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Panama City.
Physicians and staff from Sacred Heart and St. Vincent's HealthCare will set up the mobile health unit in the Catholic Charities parking lot (3128 E. 11th St., Panama City, next to Rutherford High School) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, Dec 2.
Services will include:
• Visits with a primary care provider from Sacred Heart Medical Group
• Care for minor injuries and ailments
• School physicals
• Health screenings including blood pressure and blood sugar
• On-site lab testing including urinalysis, hemoglobin A1C and total cholesterol (as ordered by provider)
The clinic also will provide a limited amount of flu vaccine and the Tdap vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough.
The health clinic is part of Ascension’s efforts to assist residents of Bay County and Gulf County which were devastated by Hurricane Michael on Oct. 10. After the hurricane caused major damage to Bay Medical in Panama City, patients were evacuated by air and ground ambulance from Bay Medical to Ascension’s hospitals in Miramar Beach, Pensacola and Jacksonville.
“Our caregivers and physicians are continuing to reach out to the communities whose health services have been disrupted by the hurricane,” said Tom VanOsdol, CEO of Ascension Florida. “It’s a privilege to be able to provide clinical resources to assist families and individuals as Bay County begins its recovery process.”
