Your First Look Now Offers Mobile Medical Services
Since January of this year, Your First Look Women’s Center now has a mobile medical vehicle. Just like our two locations, the mobile offers free and confidential pregnancy tests, ultrasounds and options counseling. We are available to answer all of your questions related to abortion, adoption, and parenting.
Bus locations vary from day to day. The current schedule has the bus in South Toledo at the corner of Broadway and South on Mondays from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. On Tuesday evenings the bus will be at That Neighborhood Free Health Clinic in front of the Summit YMCA at 306 Bush St. On Fridays, the bus is parked in a lot on the corner of West Sylvania and North Haven.
The Mobile Health Clinics Association (http://www.mobilehca.org/mission.html) estimates that there are about 2,000 mobile medical vehicles in the United States. These mobile medical centers make it easier for people to access medical services by bringing the services into the communities where people live.
On the Your First Look mobile medical center are medical personnel including a nurse and sonographer. There is also a patient advocate able to talk with you about your situation, answer your questions, and help you find community resources that will assist you with your needs.
The mobile medical center has a bathroom on board and a retractable wall that will provide you with the utmost privacy. There is an exam table as well as a state-of-the-art Voluson i 3D/4D ultrasound able to give the best possible images.
Besides being convenient to those needing our services, the Your First Look mobile women’s center has an advantage of being ale to get you in and out much more quickly than at our brick and mortar locations.
The Your First Look bus accepts both walk-ins and appointments. To find out when the bus will be near you, you can call Your First Look at 419-720-3338 or call the bus directly at 419-349-6245.
