Patients for the traveling clinics are most often referred by their primary care physician, specialist, early intervention, or a parent. Coordination of care is centered on the child and family needs by working with the child’s Medical Home and local community resources.
Traveling clinics occur three or four times a year for 1-2 days each per site. Team members travel to each clinic site to provide services. The traveling clinics are typically held at the local health department or a church. Children are seen by all appropriate services.
