Walhalla Mobile Clinic

Every Friday, Sullivan Center staff travels to Walhalla, South Carolina to work from 8:30-1:30. Guided by nurse practitioners and other Sullivan Center staff, nursing students, health science students and language students are given the opportunity to learn hands on what it is like to work in a clinic that is primarily dedicated to underserved populations. This clinic provides students with a unique experience in a rural setting and teaches the importance of culturally appropriate care. While the clinic is not just devoted to Hispanic patients, most of the staff working in Walhalla speak Spanish fluently.  Clemson students have the chance to experience what it is like to work through a language barrier and how to work with a translator and provide exceptional care.

The Walhalla Clinic started as a mobile clinic over a decade ago.  The Sullivan Center would drive their mobile bus, equipped with two exam rooms, to the health department in Walhalla and set up behind it to provide patient services. In 2013, they were given an opportunity to move inside of what is now the old health department building, allowing an expansion of space and the ability to a larger number of patients in a more comfortable setting. 

The mobile clinic is still used to deliver services for the Migrant Health Program and various Best Chance Network clinics all over the state. You may click on either of these names to learn more about these clinics.
