ARMC to Enhance Accessibility and Patient Care

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) has been selected as a beneficiary of the Accessible Clinics Program from the Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP), which will increase healthcare equity and help ARMC to provide more accessible care for residents with disabilities to facilitate better healthcare outcomes.

ARMC will receive accessible medical equipment including the ADA-compliant Upscale Accessible Exam Table, which has been ergonomically designed to support patients through a full-body exam including height and weight measurements. IEHP will also provide funding to facilitate accessibility training. ARMC’s medical staff will participate in equipment, disability sensitivity, and Connect IE training sessions in order to learn how to better support their patients.

“We’re very pleased to have this opportunity to provide a more accessible patient experience,” said William Gilbert, ARMC Hospital Director. “Having more accessible equipment in our facility will help us to better serve our patients with mobility challenges and ensure that they can connect with their physician to receive the care they need.”

The Accessible Clinics Program is dedicated to helping eligible provider sites in the Inland Empire provide better access and quality of care through accessible equipment and training. IEHP has provided over 100 accessible scales and exam tables to providers in its network in order to better serve the over 1.2 million IEHP members.
