[July 15, 2009]  There are several slight modifications in the HOPE Mobile schedule.

HardwareThe unit will not travel Aug. 4, 5 and 6. On those dates, HOPE clinical staff will provide school and athletic physicals at the Logan County Department of Public Health, 109 Third St. in Lincoln.

"The health department offers a larger, air-conditioned waiting area as compared to the HOPE Mobile," said Kat Yong, HOPE's certified family nurse practitioner. Yong also stresses that "the $45 physical rate will no longer be available after Sept. 30, 2009, so it's important to have your child's physical completed as soon as possible." Appointments are not needed for school and athletic physicals.

Beginning Aug. 3, the following schedule changes will be in effect:

  • The first Monday of each month, the HOPE Mobile will travel to Hartsburg in the morning and Emden in the afternoon.

  • The third Monday of each month will find the unit in Latham in the morning and Broadwell in the afternoon

  • Fridays will be devoted to dental appointments or maintaining the HOPE Mobile.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday schedules will remain the same.

"These changes should not have a noticeable effect on patient care or the quality of services the HOPE staff provide," said Kristi Lessen, director of the Healthy Communities Partnership.

The current month's schedule is always available at or by calling 217-732-5066.

The HOPE Mobile is a component of the Healthy Communities Partnership, a collaborative organization comprised of dozens of community agencies. It is supported in part by the Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation.
