We assess the needs of each Louisiana community that we visit and tailor our services to best meet those needs. We offer free, basic, non-emergency health services and preventive health screenings.

The importance of preventive health screenings

St. Luke's mobile medical van in Louisiana. By offering screenings, we're able to provide an early warning of an impending condition that if gone untreated could have much higher costs to the individual and community. We believe that all individuals have the right to health care. Also, by offering preventive services and discovering chronic illnesses early on, it saves the greater health care system money by avoidance of costly emergency room visits and costly treatment of the complications that occur when these chronic illnesses are not caught and treated early on.

Referrals

Although many community services are available, it is often difficult to know where to go for what type of help. We work hard to understand the services that are available in our community and work closely with these community agencies so as not to duplicate efforts. When we find someone that needs follow-up care and they do not know where to go, we help them navigate through the list of services and find the best ones to meet their needs.
