The University of Miami Pediatric Mobile Clinic offers free comprehensive medical care to local uninsured children. The clinic bus parks near Miami-Dade public schools, houses of worship, and community centers, making medical services more accessible to families like yours.
Everyone deserves quality healthcare.
Regardless of your insurance coverage, financial resources, or medical history, your child will receive services free of charge at the Pediatric Mobile Clinic. We accept patients who have never received basic preventive care and health screenings including physical exams, eye exams, hearing testing, and bloodwork.
The mobile clinic offers the same services and quality of care provided in a traditional pediatrician’s office. If your child’s medical or psychological condition requires emergency care or evaluation by a specialist, we offer referrals within the UHealth Jackson Children’s Care system. The mobile care team can also connect you with free community-based resources for social and psychological services.
Services we provide:
- Primary medical care

We can also:

UHealth’s new 38-foot mobile clinic is upgraded with telehealth capabilities in all exam rooms, enabling our providers to connect with UHealth’s medical campus specialists when needed. Two large slide-outs double the interior room size, with a separate door and room for nursing and other treatments. All rooms are equipped with standard examination equipment and medical devices, as well as internet access, which allows our providers to utilize UHealth electronic health records.
Lisa Gwynn, D.O., M.B.A., M.S.P.H., a UHealth pediatrician, serves as the director of the Pediatric Mobile Clinic.
