The CardioVascular Mobile Health Unit travels across the region, giving better access to local residents. Some of the stops include physician offices, churches, businesses, health fairs and retail sites. The unit also allows St. Elizabeth to reach those who either can’t travel to healthcare providers or might not otherwise seek cardiovascular screenings.
By deploying the CardioVascular Mobile Health Unit to locations where you live, work and play, St. Elizabeth strives to deliver topnotch care and technology directly to those who need it, where it is most accessible. In this way, the organization hopes to better prevent and reduce cardiovascular disease and stroke through screenings, risk appraisals and education.
Screenings are critical to early detection when there are rarely any outward signs of disease. Our mobile unit makes obtaining critical screenings easier and more convenient.
