In mobile clinic healthcare delivery, safety and reliability are paramount. When searching for the ideal mobile clinic or mobile unit for sale, it’s crucial to educate yourself about the critical difference between purpose-built specialized healthcare vehicles and retrofitted mobile clinic RVs. At TESCO Specialty Vehicles, we’re committed to crafting safe mobile healthcare solutions that prioritize the well-being of patients and medical staff.

Steel Frame Cage Construction: A Strong Foundation for Mobile Clinics

Our commitment to safety– it’s ingrained in the very construction of our purpose-built mobile medical units. Our mobile clinics are constructed on a foundation of steel frame cage construction, ensuring strength and reliability for your mobile healthcare needs.

Sidewall Strength and Roof Bows for Enhanced Safety

The sidewall construction of our mobile clinics includes vertical steel tubes, thoughtfully shaped to conform to the body’s contours. These tubes are expertly welded to guarantee stability and safety. The entire sidewall assembly is firmly welded to offer exceptional support.

Durable Flooring Materials for Mobile Health Clinic Vehicles

Our vehicles feature a sturdy floor framework designed to withstand the rigors of being on the road. The flooring is overlaid with Coosa BW20 3/4″ Composite Panel, known for its durability. This flooring is securely attached to the steel floor structure, ensuring a long-lasting finish.

Commercial-Grade Generators for Reliable Power

In addition to construction, our purpose-built mobile clinics also install commercial-grade generators sized appropriately to meet the needs and demands of the mobile medical clinic. This ensures a reliable power supply, crucial for medical equipment and operations.
