Serving Those in Need in Marina
The strength of a community is only as strong as its residents. This point underscores the pertinence of adequate and affordable health care services for every citizen, regardless of their socioeconomic status.
To that end, Montage Health has created the new Mobile Health Clinic program, geared toward addressing this need for healthcare delivery to community members who may have limited access to services within Marina and the greater Monterey County.
Providing these services has a significant and lasting effect on the overall health of the community, increases the quality of life for residents and fosters a sense of family within our society.
While the Mobile Clinic has been seen at Walmart on Mondays from 10:30AM to 6:00PM, it will now also be available to all on Wednesdays at Walgreens from 9:30AM to 5:00PM.
