The Rotary Mobile Clinic continues to be a beacon of hope for our patients and a source of inspiration for our volunteers and partners.

We have expanded our service offerings to include surgical residents and internal medicine residents. We have recently received funding, through a Gundersen partnership, for a program to work with at-risk pregnant women in our region – this will be a combination of Rotary Mobile Clinic work, telehealth, and will include a team including: Community Health Worker, Nurses, Physicians, and addiction specialists.
Additionally, we have had our first partnership with Scenic Bluffs providing a vaccination clinic in Monroe County – we both look forward to partnering more in the future. We continue to work with the local Homeless Outreach Team (HOT Team), Gundersen Health System, and with Vivant Health adding their mobile unit for addiction and other services. We have combined rural and farm going forward and we will see exciting changes in 2024 as our Fridays will move from twice a month to weekly!

Street Medicine serving local the sheltered and unsheltered homeless. We make rounds to Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, Cameron Park, and local parking garages. This summer has created unique challenges and unique partnerships. We actively work with the Homeless Outreach Team, including City of La Crosse Homeless Outreach Coordinator, ILR, Vivant Health and local police. We have added locations and are anticipating a more challenging service delivery model as the city may no longer allow the homeless to congregate and live in city parks.

First and third Thursday: Arcadia Middle School in partnership with St. Clare Health Mission, Bridges Health Winona, and Arcadia Schools. Recently, we have added partnerships with Cochrane-Fountain City School District. We’ve been working with partners to ramp up for another busy fall.
We alternate between farms serving immigrant farm workers. We are currently working on an expansion with Gundersen Health System where we will serve farms, rural pop-up locations, and chronic condition clinics on a rotating basis. We have added new schools, diabetic only rural clinics, and are working on a larger rotation once we hear back on a few medical foundation grants.
