The Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida is offering affordable and transportable healthcare treatments for people across Southwest Florida in need after the storm.

Just a few days after the storm passed, Karen Smith, the Director of Operations, said they started care from their mobile units offering a variety of treatments.

"We have adult care, pediatrics, pharmacy, x-ray and very needed is behavioral heath," Smith said.

She also says their mobile units still go out in the community, but now that their power is back, they have 21 different locations available for you.

It's also affordable. Smith told Four in Your Corner that even though a patient might not have insurance, they can still get the quality healthcare they need.

"We're not here to judge anybody of why they're in the position they're in," Smith said. "We're here to help them whether it's their financial issues, their health issues."

Patients like Maria Hernandez, who lives in Immokalee, is extremely grateful for the treatments provided by the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida.

"I mean God bring all these people to help down here. It's a lot of blessing," Hernandez said.
