Mobile Medical Units (MMUs)

Benefits and uses of a Mobile Medical Unit

Health care equity programs

We can help you address health inequities in traditionally underserved areas that lack adequate, permanent health infrastructure.

Full-service vendor support

Our services include technical maintenance, satellite and Wi-Fi network connection assistance, daily cleaning and more.

Border health solutions

Our care teams have expertise in providing health care services for migrants and refugees in a variety of locations.


Vaccination services
