The C. L. Brumback Primary Care Clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers owned and operated by the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, are expanding access to care for the county’s chronically homeless. A new mobile health clinic will begin serving patients late this summer. A Registered Nurse, Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP), Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a driver/registrar will staff the technologically-advanced vehicle. The vehicle, funded in part through a grant from the Quantum Foundation, opens the door for medical staff to improve the health of those in need who would not traditionally visit the clinics.
