A pediatric clinic on wheels, our C.A.R.E. Mobile offers basic health care to children from two months through age 18. The program is a partnership between Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, CoxHealth and a large family of supporters.
All services on the C.A.R.E. Mobile are provided by a nurse practitioner, working with local physicians who serve as medical directors. Available services include:
- primary care
- treatment of common illnesses
A true clinic on wheels, the C.A.R.E. Mobile makes rounds to communities throughout CoxHealth's 32-county service area. There are no appointments on the C.A.R.E. Mobile, so you may find waiting times unpredictable. The staff works quickly but thoroughly because we believe every child deserves the best possible care. Children are seen on a first-come, first-seen basis, but occasionally an ill child must be seen immediately.
The mission of the C.A.R.E. Mobile program is to provide access to health care for children in the Ozarks who have no insurance, do not have a primary care physician or whose parents cannot afford to pay for necessary services. However, no child will be turned away.
