Mission

The mission of Pottstown Street Medicine is to bring healthcare to those experiencing homelessness whether that be a tent in the woods, on the street, in a hotel, or in a car. By bringing healthcare providers directly into the community, this program works to remove barriers such as transportation, health insurance, and poor health literacy and works to improve trust between the homeless population and healthcare providers. 

About Us

This program acts as a bridge to connecting the homeless population to routine primary care and specialty care to reduce unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Since the program began in 2021, the Street Medicine team has served more than 140 unique individuals. Pottstown Street Medicine is a collaboration between Tower Health Medical Group Emergency Department Providers at Pottstown Hospital, Access Services, Community Health and Dental Care, and Creative Health Services.
