Duffy Mobile Health Clinic Adjusts Falmouth Hours

Press Release

July 22, 2011

FALMOUTH, MA – Beginning Monday August 1, 2011 the Duffy Health Center Mobile Health Clinic will spend every Monday from 9 am to 3 pm at the Falmouth Service Center, 611 Gifford Street, Falmouth.

Previously, the Mobile Health Clinic had parked during the morning at the Gus Canty Center and then moved over to the Service Center for the afternoon. Extending the time spent at the Falmouth Service Center will be more convenient for residents of Falmouth, many of whom also utilize the Service Center.

The Mobile Health Clinic serves adults who are having trouble getting their basic health care needs met and who do not have stable housing. The clinic is essentially a doctor’s office on wheels and is staffed by a nurse practitioner.

Nurse Practitioner Su Wasseluk provides primary health care and, for more complicated health care needs, can connect patients to specialists and other providers. A benefits enrollment specialist is also on board to help people enroll in MassHealth or other state health insurance plans. If an individual has private insurance or does not otherwise meet eligibility requirements, staff will be sure to assist the individual in accessing health care at a more appropriate location.

The Mobile Health Clinic also spends one day each week in Orleans and Yarmouth. Comprehensive medical care is available every weekday at the Duffy Health Center, 94 Main Street, Hyannis.

The Mobile Health Clinic began providing services in 2008 with the support of a federal grant designed to increase access to health care for persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Additional support is provided by the Boston Medical Center Health Net Plan and Irving Fuel.

The mission of Duffy Health Center is to prevent and reduce homelessness on Cape Cod through community collaborations and the provision of integrated services to persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

  • Mondays – Falmouth:
    9 am - 3 pm, Falmouth Service Center, 611 Gifford Street
  • Tuesdays – West Yarmouth:
    9 am – 3 pm, West Yarmouth Congregational Church, 282 Route 28
