Genesis Healthcare, Inc. launches mobile healthcare units to serve S.C.’s underserved communities

July 10, 2024

Genesis Healthcare, Inc. announced the launch of groundbreaking mobile healthcare units designed to address healthcare disparities and enhance access to medical services in underserved communities throughout the Pee Dee and Lowcountry regions of South Carolina.

This cutting-edge mobile clinic underscores Genesis Healthcare’s dedication to community health and disaster preparedness. The initiative responds to the urgent need for accessible healthcare, particularly during emergencies such as hurricanes and natural disasters, which disproportionately impact individuals living at or below the Federal Poverty Level.

“Genesis Healthcare recognizes the significant challenges faced by underserved communities, especially in times of crisis,” said Kim Weatherford, COO of Genesis Healthcare. “With the launch of our mobile healthcare units, we are reaffirming our commitment to reducing healthcare disparities and ensuring that everyone has access to high-quality medical services, regardless of their socioeconomic status or geographic location.”

The mobile clinics will also be integral to community outreach efforts, participating in local events, festivals, and educational programs to raise health awareness and provide on-site medical assistance. Additionally, Genesis Healthcare plans to extend its services to rural agricultural farms, offering healthcare to migrant workers who often lack access to traditional medical facilities.

Genesis Healthcare remains steadfast in its mission to deliver high-quality healthcare to underserved communities and looks forward to strengthening its partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) through this innovative initiative.
