Mobile Health Clinic

The Mobile Health Clinic (MHC) was founded in 2001 and continues to provide quality and culturally sensitive care to the vulnerable residents of East Contra Costa County. We serve the population with dedicated volunteer physicians, family medicine residents, medical students, nurses and program staff and drivers. We are excited to have our residents participating in this experience during their Vulnerable Populations Health rotations

With the help of our residents’ passion for caring for the underserved and the support of the John Muir Health system, we have been able to get a new mobile truck and expand our capacity to serve even more patients and are now at three sites (Brentwood, Pittsburg and Concord). 

Residents serve on the MHC during their Vulnerable Populations Health rotation and our commitment to this community service program and our patients remain steadfast. We also arrange special service days for youth, new immigrants and are now constantly evolving our care during covid-19.  We have been providing telehealth for the uninsured since early April of 2020.
