St. Joseph in Towson’s Medical Outreach Project Honored


St. Joseph Medical Center’s St. Clare Medical Outreach Project received the 2002 Mayor’s Business Recognition Award for outstanding community service. The St. Clare project utilizes a mobile coach outfitted as a physician’s office on wheels and staffed by a board-certified physician, a nurse practitioner, an emergency medical technician and two part-time nurses. The coach travels from Towson to Baltimore two days a week to provide health care to the uninsured, the needy and those who are unable to access the health system because of language barriers.
