In 1995, Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center acquired a 40-foot vehicle designed to transport medical staff and equipment to at-risk individuals in order to deliver preventive and primary medical care at no charge to the medically underserved residents of Macomb County.
The MCG Medical Outreach Clinic (MOC), is a doctor's office on wheels with two exam rooms, a reception and charting area, restroom, and counseling area. The MOC serves people with urgent or chronic illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, upper respiratory infections, influenza, and a variety of family medicine related issues.
The MOC serves as a training site for the McLaren Macomb Family Practice Resident training program.
Physicians on the MOC provide initial consultation, necessary medications, and follow up care. If a patient's needs can not be met by the MOC, they are referred to one of the hospital's resident clinics (orthopedics, surgery, and OB/GYN) or another physician affiliated with the hospital.
Three days per week, the MOC transports its staff of two resident physicians, one attending physician, one medical assistant, a project manager and a driver, to the Macomb County Health Department's Minority Health Coalition sites.
In addition, staff from the MOC have partnered with two Catholic parishes that have a long-standing commitment to the migrant community. The churches have served as a referral source and secured bilingual volunteers to act as interpreters for the Spanish-speaking clients.
