The John’s Island Foundation has awarded Treasure Coast Community Health (TCCH) a $40,105 grant for a Sprinter class maintenance van outfitted with tool and equipment storage, a trailer hitch, and two utility carts. The van has a high interior and long wheelbase to accommodate equipment needs.
Due to tremendous growth over the past 10 years, TCCH has expanded to nine locations, eight medical, including three dental and one administrative. In order to keep costs under control and still provide exceptional, affordable patient care, the ability to transport medical equipment and supplies, along with maintenance equipment from location to location is critical. The van will also transport supplies for community health fairs and outreach programs.
The TCCH dental program for local elementary schools is an excellent example of an outreach program that benefits from a maintenance van. TCCH dental technicians travel to the schools with the necessary equipment and provide dental screenings, sealants, and fluoride treatments to third and fifth grade students.
