Contra Costa County, which is located just east of the San Francisco Bay in California is buzzing full of great news. The Contra Costa County Health Services just received two new mobile medical units created by Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. this week. These two units will be joining four previous units in their mission to improve health and wellness of children under the age of 21, through a school based program within Contra Costa County. The 2009 Affordable Care Act, co authored by Congressman George Miller and supported by Representative John Garmendi helped to fund these two brand new mobile units. The staff at Contra Costa County Health Services couldn’t be more excited.
“We are so pleased to receive this funding for these vital resources that help us provide quick, affordable, safe and convenient health services to children who might not otherwise receive the care they need to be healthy and to be able to go to school,” said Public Health Clinic Services
Director Sue Crosby.
Both 40 foot twin units will focus their assistance within the county in school based programs. School-based health centers improve the “health and wellness of all children through health screenings, health promotion and disease prevention activities that enable children with acute or chronic illness to attend school.” These units will be offering free or low-cost services to the public school children in this county. A wide array of skilled medical and nursing services will address needs in the community such as immunizations, tuberculosis screening, and nutrition education. Other services such as family planning, reproductive health services, comprehensive sex education, crisis communication, condom availability, mental health counseling, STD treatment and awareness education are amongst the services that will be offered for the School- Based Program recipients.
Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. made sure to work with the county representatives personally in order to meet their specific requirements for these two units. The interior is fully equipped with everything they might need on the road. Starting with a registration area, with a waiting bench as well as a table and swivel chairs make this area easy to be in and even spacious. The warm caramel interior is inviting for patients and their Ultra-Leather seats couldn’t be more comfortable. The matching cabinets by Wilsonart are not only stylish but practical. All overhead cabinets have lockable storage, and the drawers with Southco positive secure latches. It also has an ADA accessible restroom as well as a nurses counseling room, which is equipped with a sink in the back of the room.
The last room in the vehicle is the exam room equipped with a power exam table by Midmark, including the matching stool. The exam room is also fully equipped with stainless steel sink and faucet, Meganite countertops and lockable overhead cabinets. . This room is also ADA accessible with a Ricon wheelchair lift. Each vehicle is even equipped with a slide out pharmacy for medications and Follet Medical grade refrigerator and freezer that hold needed vaccines or utensils.
Both have all of these great components inside, but they also look fantastic from the outside. The units are wrapped with vinyl lettering and have full color UV laminated graphics. They picture the rolling hills of Contra Costa County and are truly a sight to see. The green to teal fade in the front of the unit makes a bold statement. Their logo is featured towards the back on the side. These bright colors and new shiny exterior bring a great finish to not one, but two brand new units. These beautiful bright colored graphics were designed by SoCal Wraps, and if they weren’t created as identical units, you’d swear each was one of a kind.
The staff using these two units is extremely excited to receive them finally and put them to great use. Contra Costa now has a total of six units to aid the people of their county. These two vehicles both ingeniously designed and fully operational, will be bringing services and help that will greatly support our future generations in Contra Costa County, and we here at USV are proud to have been a part of that aid. Universal Specialty Vehicles, Inc. continues to deliver overall customer satisfaction. For questions or inquiries, please visit us at www.usv1.com or www.facebook.com/USVInc.
