Mobile Health Program

Mobile Health Program

FDIHB, Inc.’s Mobile Health Program is dedicated to improving community health and well-being by increasing access to safe, quality and preventive health services.

Working with local partners at chapters, senior centers, markets, schools, and other community resources, the Mobile Health Program aims to reduce barriers to care, such as lack of transportation, trust in the traditional healthcare system, or lack of time or ability to travel the often long distances to either of our two facilities, Tsehootsooi Medical Center (Fort Defiance, AZ) and Nahata Dziil Health Center (Sanders, AZ).

In order to reach those who need services the most, the mobile units travel across Fort Defiance Service area, spanning 16 chapters in Arizona and New Mexico, to bring a range of services directly to our community members.

We aim to be a community resource for care, especially for those who do not currently have a primary care provider. Appointments and walk-ins welcome.
