As the neighborhood knits itself tighter together during the post-Sandy quest for normalcy, more and more resources are being channeled to help those in need. Community Healthcare Network is rolling (literally) out a van to offer medical services. From the press release:
In response to the ongoing power outage affecting the region, the Community Healthcare Network (CHN) is bringing vital medical services to residents of the Lower East Side on Friday.
CHN today announced that its Medical Mobile Van will be stationed outside of its Downtown Health Center at 150 Essex Street. The Center currently is closed due to the lingering power outage, and is expected to reopen its doors as early as this weekend.
The Downtown Health Center (formerly the Lower East Side Health Center) has been serving Manhattan’s Lower East Side since 1971.CHN operates the mobile health van that travels to areas that do not have ready access to health services. The van makes weekly visits to schools and community organizations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
On Friday, the Mobile Van will provide pediatric,adult and adolescent medicine, and family planning services to patients from 9 AM to 5 PM Friday. No appointments are necessary. Most insurance accepted. Welcoming all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
