Ryan Health a family of federally qualified health centers, unveiled today its new mobile health center bringing primary care to underserved communities in New York City.

- Two full exam rooms (including one designated for handicapped patients) equipped with sinks;
- An enhanced HVAC system;
- Large TV screen for patient education;
- Space for vaccines and medications; and
- An awning for outdoor patient care, education, and patient enrollment.
In addition to primary care, the van will be used for community outreach events providing HIV testing and prevention, and other screenings.
