Mobile Medical Care, Inc.

LaToya and Patient

Founded in 1968, MobileMed's mission is to improve the health of low-income people who face the greatest barriers to care access. Our values include:

- Healthcare access for all

- Quality services provided with compassion, respect and cultural sensitivity

- Organizational excellence and integrity

We also provide patient education toward self-directed health management, improved health and a decrease in the need for Emergency Department medical care.

We serve 6,000 people annually with the help of our dedicated staff and 200 volunteers. Hailing from more than 100 countries and speaking 25 languages, many of our patients suffer from one or more chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, obesity, high cholesterol, hepatitis, asthma, assorted allergies, orthopedic disabilities or cancer.  All struggle with the reality of a community whose need for quality healthcare exceeds its capacity to deliver.

Our clinics are conveniently located on mass transit lines and are available at fixed sites and on mobile medical vans at nine locations in Montgomery County (DC Metro Area). Both appointments and walk-in care are available. Community partnerships make it possible to reach underserved populations, and to provide diagnostics, integrated behavioral healthcare and specialty care.

In our most recent patient satisfaction survey, 100% said they would recommend MobileMed to others! (Pictured are volunteer Dr. Marjorie Dannis and Maria at our new Complex Clinic in Rockville.)

MobileMed Changes Lives!

A 28-year-old woman named Marina came to our Gaithersburg Clinic at Ascension House with weight loss and in an urgent health crisis. She had experienced abdominal pain for three years, worsening over the past 3-4 months. Marina had become anorexic and lost 7 pounds due to an inability to eat, and was having nausea and vomiting with pain late at night. 

Marina was immediately referred for an ultrasound and had surgery for removal of gallstones. She returned to our Gaithersburg Clinic the following Tuesday, greatly improved! (Pictured are volunteer Joseph from Church of the Ascension and patients waiting to be seen at our Gaithersburg Walk-In Clinic.)
