Mobile Medical Unit scheduled to visit Falfurrias, Texas
|HARLINGEN, Texas -- VA Texas Valley Costal Bend Health Care System’s Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) is scheduled visit Falfurrias, Texas, on Monday, Feb. 26, 2018.
The MMU will be on site at the parking lot of the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW), Post 7634, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
VFW, Post 7634 is located at:
Veterans in Falfurrias and other local surrounding communities are encouraged to visit the Mobile Medical Unit for medical services.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has deployed MMUs for more than 20 years. MMUs deliver primary care and other services to enrolled Veterans with limited access to VA healthcare services due to low population density, remoteness, or limited local demand for specialized services.
MMUs have also been used to identify and enroll Veterans who, for several reasons, may not have sought needed care and services at permanent VA facilities.
MMUs can also provide service continuity during emergencies when permanent sites of care are disabled or insufficient to meet the demand for healthcare services. The Mobile Medical Unit was recently used as part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ recovery efforts during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
