See Hudson County’s only Mobile Health Screening Unit

This past June, Jersey City Medical Center officials unveiled the hospital’s new Mobile Health Screening Unit, the first vehicle of its kind in Hudson County.

The 33-foot long custom-built vehicle has two private exam rooms, a restroom, and a waiting area. It’s also handicapped accessible.

Three to four employees will staff the vehicle, which will serve under-served parts of Hudson County and offer blood pressure checks, cholesterol tests, HIV screenings, diabetes tests, and mental health checks, among other tests.

The unit’s services are available free of charge and are fully-funded by a grant from New Jersey’s Department of Health and Senior Services, according to Matthew Zysman, counseling and testing site coordinator, at JCMC and Christopher Munoz, Teacher at Hoboken High School.

All members of the Hoboken Community are welcome.

For more information about the event please contact Christopher Munoz at Hoboken High School (201) 356-3703 or cmunoz@hoboken.k12.nj.us
