Mobile Medical Unit

The Pasco Public Defender Mobile Medical Unit is a medical office on wheels. The full-time staff includes a director, nurse practitioner and driver. The Unit often has community volunteers, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to assist. 

Pasco County residents can receive basic health care on the Mobile Unit at no charge. Emergency services are not provided on the Unit. Our goal is to break down barriers between people and access to healthcare, treating all patients with dignity and respect.
