Tampa General Hospital rolls out mobile units with exam rooms, labs, testing

Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital is rolling out two new mobile health units to conduct physicals, screenings and immunizations for community members and employers.

The project uses CARES Act funding allocated through Hillsborough County, Fla., and will focus on underserved communities and offer COVID-19 testing. The vans have exam and waiting rooms, lab testing areas and are wheelchair accessible.

"We are always innovating at Tampa General," said Adam Smith, the hospital's executive vice president and chief ambulatory care officer, in a Jan. 20 news release. "TGH Mobile Care to You is another example of programs we're developing with community partners to support public health and help eliminate social, structural and economic barriers to healthcare."

The units will also provide onsite healthcare to county employees and local businesses. OneTGH Employer Solutions' services include preemployment testing, post-hire physicians and wellness checkups.
