Care Van

CHRISTUS Spohn Health System approached American Bank with an idea for getting health screenings to our community. The proposal turned in to the CHRISTUS Spohn CareVan, purchased with a donation from American Bank. The CareVan began serving the community in November 2010.

All activity and screenings on the CareVan are free of charge to the uninsured. We believe that healthcare should be available and accessible. Through the CareVan, those in our community who are uninsured are empowered and educated on their health. Screenings offered on the CareVan include, cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, and A1C evaluations.

The CareVan also specializes in Women's Services. The outreach program offers prenatal healthcare and gynecological care on a weekly basis.

Staffed by a combination of Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and a Community Health Workers, the CHRISTUS Spohn CareVan is able to counsel one-on-one and refer those who need further resources to our community partners. The impact of the CareVan produces a healthier community by promoting self-confidence through empowering people in their self-care.
