  • Partnership with Cornerstone Family Healthcare Brings Mobile Health Vehicle to Orange County

    September 08, 2016

    On Wednesday, August 10th, Affinity Health Plan and Cornerstone Family Healthcare celebrated Healthcare for the Homeless Day with elected officials and supporters at HONOR, Orange County’s transitional housing shelter in Middletown. Community supporters convened to celebrate the deployment of a new state-of-the-art mobile health vehicle serving Orange County. The van, made possible by a $200,000 grant from Affinity Health Plan, will enable the non-profit community health center to greatly expand health care services and provide primary care to a greater number of homeless individuals, and individuals in transition, who otherwise do not have access to basic healthcare.
    The mobile health vehicle is furnished with two ample-sized exam rooms and is equipped with a family nurse practitioner (FNP) and supporting care delivery team, supplying a wide range of healthcare treatment options ranging from acute and chronic illness care to physical examinations, immunizations, and laboratory testing. Assistance with health insurance enrollment is also available as well as linkage and referral to community supports.
    The new mobile van will be in service at the following Orange County locations:
