Mobile Health of Evangelical was introduced in 2018 as a new service of Evangelical Community Hospital to increase access to healthcare in the more rural communities of the Susquehanna Valley. An extension of the Hospital, the bus provides space for comprehensive blood screenings, free health screens, wellness education outreach, and specialty care such as primary, women’s health, and cardiac visits.
