Students served by Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s (YRMC’s) Mobile Kids Health Clinic received a gift from Wells Fargo that will help start the year right. Yavapai County Wells Fargo bank branches donated $15,000 to YRMC’s Partner’s for Healthy Students Mobile Kids Health Clinic for 2015.
“We’re delighted by this generous donation,” said Robbie Nicol, Executive Director, YRMC Community Outreach and Philanthropy. “Thanks to Wells Fargo, more uninsured and underinsured children who need medications for acute illnesses will have them available.”
The Wells Fargo donation also will allow Partners for Healthy Students to purchase needed medical supplies for the Mobile Kids Health Clinic. Additionally, the donation will help keep the mobile clinic running to school destinations in rural communities in western Yavapai County as well as schools in the Prescott area.
“Supporting our communities is at the center of Wells Fargo’s Vision and Values and we are pleased to help fund the Partners for Healthy Students Mobile Medical program,” said David Dinerman, Wells Fargo Business Relationship Manager. “The mobile clinic is an invaluable resource in helping meet the pediatric health needs of so many children in underserved communities throughout Yavapai County.”
Partners for Healthy Students provides free health services to uninsured or under insured students at the schools it serves. The healthcare services, which are provided by certified pediatric nurse practitioners, include:
- Diagnosis and treatment of illness
