Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Debuts New Mobile Health Program

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic Debuts New Mobile Health Program With Two Mobile Health Motorcoaches

The specially designed motorcoaches offer primary care services and mammograms at employer worksites and events in the Greater Houston area

HOUSTON, Texas. (July 11, 2022) – Kelsey-Seybold Clinic debuted its new mobile health program today by rolling out mobile health and mammography motorcoaches to serve employer clients in the Greater Houston area. This new program helps fill potential gaps in care for area employers as well as reduce related employee absenteeism and productivity loss.

“Our new mobile health program is a great option for our employer clients who want to provide safe and convenient onsite services ranging from pre-employment health and safety screenings during new hire events to preventive physicals at employer-sponsored health fairs,” said Franco Minor, M.B.A., Director of Corporate, Executive, and Wellness Programs, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic.

While the vehicles may be similar in design, the Kelsey-Seybold Clinic mobile health motorcoach and the mammography motorcoach provide different services. The mobile health motorcoach is equipped with two exam rooms and can accommodate up to two medical providers. Physicals and wellness screenings, drug and alcohol testing, electrocardiograms (ECG/EKG), pre-employment and DOT exams, vaccinations, laboratory testing, medical surveillance – vision and hearing screenings and respirator fit testing are offered.

“Many Houston-area employers are required to complete periodic health and safety tests and exams for their employees." said Patrick Carter, M.D., M.B.A., F.A.A.F.P, Chief of Occupational Medicine and Medical Director for Care Coordination and Quality Improvement, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. "With our new mobile units, these tests can be done at an employer’s location, making it convenient for employees who would otherwise have to complete these exams on their own time.”

Kelsey-Seybold’s mobile mammography motorcoach is equipped to offer 2D and 3D mammograms and two mammography technologists can see up to 18 patients each day.

“Our vision for our mammography motorcoaches is to provide a convenient access to employees for this life-saving screening,” said Blanca Gutierrez, Regional Director of Medical Imaging, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. “We know early breast cancer detection saves lives and we want to make it easy and safe for women to get their screenings.”
