Last year, Congresswoman Lois Capps announced that Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, Inc. would be receiving grant funding to assist with the expansion of the school-based health care services in the Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. CHCCC is not new to this process however; they were still thrilled to know the impact this opportunity would give to the students. Community Health Centers agreed to partner up with Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. to build their two upcoming units. CHC has previous experience working with the staff at USV and it was no doubt they would agree to have their professional assistance with such a huge project.
Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. has a reputation for putting their customers first. USV worked hand in hand with George Johnston, the CHCCC Dental Operations Officer, and Sophia Sosa, Chief Operations Officer, to design a functional floor plan that would utilize enough space for the patients and staff members. Both vehicles are custom made to meet the requirements and necessities of the communities they will be servicing.
The pediatric dental clinic was constructed to retain two dental operatory chairs in the rear portion of the vehicle which include their separate dental carts. The other half of the vehicle consists of a receptionist desk with bench seating and a galley area, as well as a restroom.
The medical clinic is similar in that it hosts two exam rooms, fully equipped with Welch-Allyn Diagnostic systems and a lab area. The front exam room contains a wall-mounted HDTV and two handi-flip seats. The galley area has a receptionist desk along with a printer, bench seating and over-head cabinets for storage. Both of the vehicle graphics were designed and installed by SoCal Wraps.
With the addition of these two new clinics, Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, Inc. is able to expand their services to a total of twelve supplementary schools and four additional school districts. Louis Capps stated that “expanding the number and reach of these centers is a clear win for our children”. The USV team did an amazing job in developing these vehicles and hopes to work with CHC again in the future!
