Who is AVAN Mobility?


Mobile Medical Van


We at AVAN Mobility are a company based in the U.S. that makes customized mobile medical vans. Our dedicated team cares about everyone having access to healthcare, and that’s why we manufacture vans for organizations like yours that serve people who need medical care. 

We have a team of friendly and creative people who work together to solve challenges to overcoming barriers to healthcare. We directly manufacture all of the vans for clients we work with, and we’ve been in the business for over a decade.

Some organizations we work with are Native Reservations, housing and homeless societies, behavioral health services, and non-emergency medical services.


What mobile medical vehicles does AVAN Mobility Offer?

At AVAN Mobility, we offer 4 different types of mobile medical vans that are all built on the RAM Promaster 2500 159” Wheelbase High Roof model chassis. Each van is equipped for different purposes, but all are designed to reduce barriers to healthcare. Read on to learn more about our options.


Mobile Clinic Van

Our Mobile Medical Clinic Van (MC Van) is designed to bring healthcare closer to those who need it most. These vans are important for reducing health barriers, especially in remote and underserved areas, so patients don’t have to travel to a clinic. 

The MC Van has a setup like a “doctor’s office on wheels,” with lots of storage, an optional sink and fridge, and reliable power to make a comfy and well-equipped medical space. It also has air conditioning, easy-to-clean surfaces, and bright lights.

You can change the inside layout to fit the different medical services that your organization offers. Besides regular healthcare, you can use the MC Van for addiction treatment, mental health counseling, and reaching out to vulnerable people who don’t have access to it. 


Mobile Response Van

Our Mobile Response Van is also known as the Non-Emergency Mobile Medical Response Van. The MR Van, like an ambulance but for non-urgent medical needs and transportation, comes with several important features. 

It has aluminum cabinets for medical gear and a flexible floor system called AutoFloor. This system allows for various seating arrangements in the van. The seats are easy to clean,  adaptable, and comfortable. The van offers storage for medical equipment and even room for stretchers. You can control air conditioning and heat from controls in the back of the van to ensure a climate-controlled environment.

Keep in mind that this van is not suitable for critical patients. It’s mainly used for non-urgent medical needs, patient transfers, or as an urgent care clinic. It can also serve as a mobile medical treatment center on remote job sites, helping injured workers. This reduces the burden on emergency rooms.


Mobile Outreach Van

The Mobile Outreach Van plays an essential role in assisting your organization in delivering services to those in need. These vehicles are suitable for a variety of programs, including overdose prevention, harm reduction, referral services, and mental health counseling. 

The MO Van is designed to provide both transportation and a clinic space in one, making services more accessible. It offers features like ample storage, flexible seating configurations, and a mobile office setup. The interior’s wipe-clean, transit-grade seats are easy to clean, and you can also customize the van with things like winter tires, grab handles, and medical equipment specific to your organization’s needs.

These vans build trust by meeting individuals where they are. They help to eliminate the need for people to seek help at a clinic. They’re mobile and can travel to different neighborhoods, expanding outreach efforts to reach more people in need. 


Mobile Mitigation Van

The Mobile Mitigation Van provides a secure and sterile area for supervised consumption services. This helps ensure safe injection practices, reduces needle sharing, and prevents overdoses.

Inside the van, you’ll find individual desk pods for client privacy. These pods have chairs, privacy panels, and electrical outlets. There’s also a mobile office space for healthcare or social workers to do administrative tasks. For storage, there are tall cabinets for medical equipment and supplies, along with overhead storage. A secure partition separates the driver’s area from the rear compartments.

The van is made from easy-to-clean aluminum for a sterile environment. It also has rear heating and air conditioning for comfort. You can customize it with options like sinks, extra power supplies, and awnings.

If your program or organization has a focus on mobile dental, mammography, blood, or laboratory services, LifeLine Mobile is a strong choice to consider. 

At AVAN Mobility, we’re the right choice for you if your organization is focused on mobile healthcare, non-emergency needs, outreach, and mitigation.
