WHMU ADA-compliant vehicle opens new doors into the future of mobile health services
July 7, 2022
Earlier this summer, the Wayne Health Mobile Unit (WHMU) added an ADA-compliant vehicle to further its mission of bringing accessible health services to the Detroit community.
People who are living with disabilities have many obstacles that they face daily. In Detroit, the challenges are even more significant with the lack of reliable transportation, accessible housing and equitable health care.
Using geospatial mapping, the WHMU will deploy the ADA-compliant vehicle to specific locations with a higher population of people with disabilities. The ADA-compliant vehicle has a wheelchair lift and a wheelchair-accessible workstation for blood draw, hypertension screenings and telehealth visits
As an integral partner to Wayne Health’s Center for Population Health Accountability, the WHMU strives to be a socially responsible organization, and values accessibility for everyone.
Adding an ADA-compliant vehicle to their mobile unit fleet allows Wayne Health to move the needle in the right direction by providing access to high-quality preventative health care services for all people. The van provides mobility and accessibility, thus allowing us to better serve people by removing some of the barriers that people living with disabilities in Detroit face.
