Salina Family Healthcare Center has a new mobile medical unit and they want you to see it!

The new mobile medical unit will allow the SFHC's outreach team to travel and offer medical services without patients needing to go to the SFHC facility at 651 E. Prescott Road or even leave rural communities, SFHC noted in a news release.

The public is invited to participate in a walk-through tour of the mobile medical unit on Saturday.

From noon to 3 p.m., the unit will be in the south parking lot of the Central Mall, 2259 S. Ninth Street, near the former J.C. Penney location.

From 4-6 p.m., the mobile medical unit will be at Dillons, 1201 W. Crawford, for Souper Bowl of Hope, in collaboration with the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank. The public is encouraged to bring cans of soup for the food bank.

"The outreach department at SFHC is excited to bring even more services to the community via this ADA-accessible mobile unit! We look forward to providing basic medical care, limited acute care, and offering support to people with chronic diseases like diabetes and COPD. Additionally, through our community partnerships, the outreach team can connect people with resources they may not be aware of," said Kelli Bowles, outreach nurse.

People who are not able to attend the Saturday tours are encouraged to follow the Salina Family Healthcare Center's Facebook page for the mobile medical unit's next scheduled community locations and events.
