Henry Ford, Children’s Health Fund Expand Access to Health Care with Second Mobile Medical Clinic for Detroit’s Medically Underserved Children
Date:10/28/2013

Detroit, MI (PRWEB) October 28, 2013

To keep up with the extraordinary need for health care services among Detroit’s medically underserved children, Children’s Health Fund and Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) today unveiled a second mobile medical clinic for the Children’s Health Project of Detroit that will double its capacity to provide comprehensive health care services for school children in Detroit’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods.

Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) joined Children’s Health Fund Executive Director Karen Redlener and Henry Ford Health System CEO Nancy M.

The Dixon Drill Team and students from Thirkell Elementary School performed at the ribbon cutting ceremony for this new “doctor’s office on wheels.”

Senator Stabenow has worked closely with Children’s Health Fund since 2009 and was instrumental in bringing the first mobile unit to the Children’s Health Project of Detroit three years ago. Senator Stabenow, who pledged her salary for the duration of the federal government shutdown, announced at today’s unveiling that she would donate $4,600 to Children’s Health Fund for the second mobile medical clinic.

The Children’s Health Project of Detroit began treating children in 2011 with its first mobile clinic, called “Hank” in honor of Henry Ford. This second mobile clinic, which has been named “Clara” in remembrance of Ford’s wife, has the capacity to double the current level of service to 2,000 medical visits, bringing health care to 700-800 children each year. Students at Thirkell Elementary and Cody High School will immediately benefit from this new capacity, with other schools expected to be added in 2014.

“It is essential that kids are healthy and ready to learn,” said Karen Redlener, the executive director of Children’s Health Fund. “If a child is up all night coughing with asthma, or
