Duffy Mobile Health Clinic Finds New Home


The Duffy Health Center Mobile Health Clinic heads to its new home on Tuesday.

The vehicle will drive aboard the Steamship Authority ferry at Woods Hole for a trip to Martha’s Vineyard where Island Health Care will be the new owner of the 34-foot refurbished RV that has served as a mobile medical center for the past decade.

Island Health Care’s CEO, Cynthia Mitchell, says the volume of patients in need of care exceeds their physical space capacity at the health center in Edgartown and that the Mobile Health Clinic will offer the opportunity to see more patients while Island Health explores options for physical space expansion.

Island Health Care plans to use the RV as a free standing clinic next to their current site.
