ARMC Accepts Donation of a New Mobile Medical Clinic

Many San Bernardino County residents face multiple barriers to accessing health care services, including homelessness, lack of insurance, poverty, lack of transportation and unemployment. To assist these residents, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on October 24, accepted the donation of a mobile medical clinic by the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center Foundation to be operated throughout the county.

The donation consists of a truck and trailer equipped to support a medical clinic with an estimated value of $626,040.

The County’s Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) provides medical care to multiple communities at different locations throughout the county. The mobile medical clinic will be used to reach out to remote communities needing access to medical care.

“Equipped with modern medical technology and staffed with trained health care professionals, the clinic aims to improve access to quality medical care, especially for underserved populations,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Dawn Rowe. “The ARMC Foundation’s generous donation of the mobile medical clinic helps ensure that everyone has access to essential medical services.”

This collaboration with the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center Foundation is an example of the benefit of partnerships in addressing health care disparities. The mobile medical clinic will soon be operational and serve as a lifeline for many San Bernardino County residents in need.

The foundation was established in 1977 with the sole purpose of supporting the mission of ARMC. The foundation is a non-profit, public-benefit corporation formed pursuant to the applicable provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. A volunteer board of directors, comprised of physicians and citizens, oversees the foundation. Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is a 456-bed university-affiliated teaching hospital operated by San Bernardino County and governed by the Board of Supervisors.
