Mobile Medical Unit and Bayside Health Clinic

Pinellas County Human Services

Pinellas County Human Services operates the Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) and Bayside Health Clinic in our ongoing effort to help improve the quality of life for Pinellas County citizens. We serve all homeless patients regardless of their ability to pay.

The Mobile Medical Unit

The MMU has provided outreach medical and dental care to the homeless population in Pinellas County since 1988. Funding for these services is provided jointly by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners. Dental care is provided by referral to the Bayside Health Clinic. The vehicle includes exam rooms, an interview room and medical equipment to provide patients with state-of-the-art care. A physician, nurses, program supervisor, case manager and driver complete the MMU team.

The MMU visits shelters, soup kitchens, drop-in centers and other locations to serve homeless residents.

There is a monthly calendar of open hours and scheduled locations for the MMU and open hours for the Bayside Health Clinic. Appointments can be scheduled but are not necessary as walk-ins are welcome.

For more information, please call (727) 432-4763.
