When HealthCore’s new mobile clinic rolls into underserved communities, it always brings a lot of smiles — but the first two belonged to a pair of our employees.
Luis Alvarado and Troy Madron, members of our New Horizons team, had always wanted to have their smiles fixed but lacked the resources, so HealthCore provided the dental work at no cost.
“We love promoting a healthy community,” said Davna Gould, HealthCore Clinic director of communications. “This was one small way we could make a difference in the New Horizons community and say ‘thank you’ for everything they had done for us.”
For their part, Luis and Troy are so thankful for the kindness HealthCore has shown them that their smiles say it all!
HealthCore operates a 45,000-square-foot complex in Wichita, KS, but needed a mobile clinic to take its services to vulnerable populations at school-based sites and outreach events.
“Our specific requirements made it clear we would need a custom build to have ample space for providing medical, dental and behavioral health with respect and dignity to the community,” Gould said.
They came to us after a national search revealed New Horizons as the best company for the job.
“The New Horizons team was passionate about our mission, shared our vision and had a reputation of excellence unmatched in the industry,” Gould said. “As we provided challenges, they provided solutions.”
We were able to fit two medical exam rooms, one behavioral health room, two dental chairs, a lab, waiting area and restroom into one of our 45-foot Majestic RVs.
Challenges associated with building this rig started with drafting the exam rooms with basic dimensions. We had to make certain everything was handicap accessible, and we needed to accommodate a wheelchair lift. Staying within regulation was a challenge, but it was well worth it.
Gould raved about HealthCore’s experience with us.
“They are pioneers in their field with a level of hospitality, customer service and craftsmanship that makes them the absolute best,” she said. “We didn’t just find a builder, we found a partner, and we will carry that partnership with us everywhere this amazing mobile clinic goes.”
We love creating one-of-a-kind coaches for our customers, and although most don’t include dental chairs, we’re happy to build whatever suits your fancy. Call us whether you’re looking for a custom RV for luxurious full-time living or for hauling your favorite toys to outdoor adventures.
