The mission of the Mobile Medical program is to build relationships with people experiencing homelessness by providing patient-led health and social services, meeting people where they are, and fostering health and well-being.

The program brings mobile medical clinics to free meal programs, food banks, and encampments throughout Seattle and South King County.

Clinic dates and times are listed on the chart at the bottom of this page. The chart also shows mobile dental clinics held at meal programs. Anyone experiencing homelessness in need of care can walk up to the program's medical van. The program does not charge a fee and does not require insurance. No appointment is necessary.

For the DENTAL VAN please arrive 30 minutes before the clinic begins. Dental care is primarily focused on treating dental pain and emergency conditions. It does not include preventative cleanings.

How we can help

Onsite the mobile medical team offers clients:

  • Walk-in primary care for acute and chronic conditions
  • STD, HIV and Hepatitis C testing
  • Family planning
  • Access to behavioral health and chemical dependency specialists
  • Naloxone overdose prevention training and kits

We can also help people connect to other community services including:

  • A doctor's office that can provide follow-up care
  • Mental health care, including counseling
  • Substance abuse counseling and treatment via a harm reduction approach
  • Enrollment into health insurance
  • Enrollment into ORCA LIFT transportation assistance
  • Referrals to shelter, food banks, legal assistance and domestic violence programs

For other local community resources please call 211.

The medical van does not carry narcotics nor provide any prescription pain medications.

NOTE: This program provides walk-in care for people who are living homeless (or were recently homeless) only. Please try to arrive at least one hour before the scheduled end time for the clinic. On rare occasions the clinic will close earlier than the scheduled time. Call the Mobile Van nursing lines  if you would like to confirm the clinic end time for a particular day.
