Free Mobile Clinic - Project HOPE - Resumes Service


Project HOPE, Sonora Regional Medical Center’s free mobile medical clinic, will resume service on Thursday, September 10th. The outreach program has been on hiatus while nurse practitioner Sheila Monaghan was on medical leave.

For the first month only, the Project HOPE health van will be located between Wal-Mart and PetSmart on Mondays and Thursdays. Hours on September 10, 14 and 17 will be from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Please arrive at least an hour before closing to allow yourself time to be seen. Starting Monday, September 21, the hours will resume to 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The health van will be at Interfaith on Thursday, September 24, and will then resume its fourth Friday of the month schedule starting in October. Starting Monday, October 5, the schedule will go back to its original service days of Monday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. adjacent to Wal-Mart.

“I am so pleased that this important community service of the Medical Center will once again be available to provide care to those people who do not have insurance or have high deductibles,” stated Gail Witzlsteiner, Executive Director of the Sonora Regional Medical Center Foundation, who oversees and raises funds for the service. She is assisted by James Mosson, MD, Medical Director of Project HOPE and Ken Renwick, MD, who will be assisting Monaghan during the first month. “I am very appreciative of the support of our physicians Drs. Mosson and Renwick and our donors to the Golf Classic who fund this program, and am so grateful that Sheila is feeling better and ready to return.”

Project HOPE has been providing free care to the medically underserved since 1997.
