Catholic Health Adds Community Health Bus

Catholic Health Adds Community Health Bus

An outreach nurse is on each bus and provides blood pressure and body mass index screenings, cholesterol and glucose screenings along with patient education and referrals to care as needed. The site visits are held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and no appointments are necessary. Catholic Health Outreach staff will not ask for immigration status, nor is insurance required. There are no fees for service. “Whether there are issues with transportation, income, communication or just a fear of discussing health issues, we reach those in the community who need essential health care,” Gilroy added.

Catholic Health has a similar program in Nassau County. With the bus, the healthcare system will focus on those Suffolk County residents who are low income uninsured, publicly insured and those who may be ineligible for insurance due to their immigration status.

“Our goal with community outreach is to remove the barriers that may prevent people from receiving the health care they need,” Catholic Health Community Outreach and Community Benefit Reporting Manager Patricia Gilroy said in a statement. “We’re committed to making Catholic Health the most patient-centered health care system on Long Island,” Catholic Health President and CEO Dr. Patrick O’Shaughnessy said in a statement. “We’re helping people where they are, in their homes and in their communities.”
