The Department of Veterans Affairs has begun deploying mobile medical units to cities across the country to provide care for homeless and at-risk veterans, VA announced in a press release.

“Veterans experiencing homelessness face a variety of barriers to accessing health care, including a lack of transportation,” VA Secretary Denis McDonough said. “With these new mobile medical units, homeless and at-risk veterans don’t have to visit VA hospitals — we come right to them.”
