Mobile Health

At Children’s National Hospital, improving health outcomes for children in the community is a key part of our mission. Our partnership with the Children’s Health Project of the District of Columbia enables us to provide free, comprehensive health and dental care to children from birth to age 21 in our mobile health program. The Children’s Health Project is part of a nationwide program supported by the Children’s Health Fund, dedicated to improving access for children to quality health services through mobile healthcare. By bringing care to kids in their own community, the program serves approximately 4,000 children through 7,000 visits annually.

Medicine on the Move

Our big, blue wheelchair-accessible mobile units visit 11 sites weekly throughout Washington, D.C., including several locations near public housing. These units are based at the THEARC - Congress Heights, one of our primary care centers. We also provide some mobile health services in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Children’s National doctors and healthcare professionals staff our mobile units, providing medical physicals and check-ups, screenings, treatments, behavioral counseling and more for a wide variety of conditions. In addition, our state-of-the-art mobile dental unit is equipped to provide comprehensive dental care for children right in their neighborhood.
