Everything You Need to Know About Mobile Clinics
Expanding your healthcare services through a mobile clinic is a big milestone. With a mobile clinic, you can reach out to people in their own neighborhood, without leaving the comfort of your work environment. If you’re looking for new opportunities to grow your health services, this is where to start.
So what is it that you are looking for in a mobile clinic? Much like building a custom home or shopping for a new car, you want your mobile clinic to have everything you need. In this article, we want to go over how you can take advantage of a mobile clinic for your healthcare services.
Mobile Clinics Come in More than One Size
The first decision that comes to play is the size of your mobile clinic. If you’re a mobile doctor for a patient every now and then, a smaller unit may suffice. On the other hand, if you’re moving your entire office on the road treating multitudes of people at a time, you may want a bigger sized unit. Take a look at some of the options that are available.
Truck options are much like U-Haul trucks in terms of size. They’re extremely mobile, great for those that move around on a regular basis. The only disadvantage is the limitation of space, but a design that allows for expandable sides makes this a flexible option for small healthcare services.
Trailers are the tow behind solution for small to medium sized clinics. These mobile clinics are towable by any standard pick-up truck or a 5th wheel trailer connection. Trailers offer a lot more room than truck options, and offer a range of options for many healthcare services. The one limitation with this option is maneuverability. Trailers are a bit more difficult to maneuver, when compared to a self-motorized unit.
Containers are the biggest and most durable of all mobile clinic options. It’s the go-to option if you’re looking to put an entire office on wheels. Typically if you can imagine a design that doesn’t break the laws of physics, it is possible to make happen. This option is perfect if your mobile clinic remains stationary for periods at a time, as it does require a semi-truck to haul the unit around.
Give Your Mobile Clinic its Unique Identity
Whether you are a dentist, or an operator of a blood drive, you want your mobile clinic to be outfit with what you need. That’s why it’s important to customize the way you want it. It’s simple and easy to accomplish.
First, write out the answer to the following questions:
- What’s your specialty?
- How many patients do you expect to go through per day?
- How often will you be using your mobile clinic?
- Will there be Handicap Accessibility?
- Do you want public and personal bathrooms?
- What equipment are you using?
- Is your mobile clinic going to be exclusively inside or will it expand beyond the walls of the unit?
Alongside a design team, your answers to the questions above will help layout a design that maximizes the space of your mobile clinic and includes everything you need to make your clinic a success.
