The Fallon Tribal Health Center introduces their new mobile medical clinic

In rural Nevada, a new mobile clinic was officially opened at the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Health Clinic. The clinic, funded by a $672,950 emergency rural healthcare grant, will provide improved access to healthcare for approximately 2000 Native Americans in the area. Joy Schultz, an RN at the clinic, highlighted the importance of reaching patients where they are at, especially for those who cannot make it into the clinic.

The mobile clinic is a converted F550 and offers a range of services including immunizations, lab testing, physician and nurse visits, wound care, and prescription medicine distribution. USDA Rural Development Undersecretary Basil Gooden attended the ribbon cutting to show support for the initiative.

The new mobile clinic will serve the Fallon Paiute Shoshone tribe, The Lovelock Paiute tribe, and the Yomba Shoshone tribe, covering approximately 200 miles of territory in total. This development is being hailed as a game changer for these communities
