What Is the Mobile Primary Care Bus?
The Mobile Primary Care Bus, powered by TELUS Health, launched January 2020. The Bus is an extension of the excellent work that Sanguen has been offering the region for years. The Bus works through a harm reduction lens, offering low barrier health care to folks within the Region of Waterloo who are precariously housed or unhoused and are negatively affected by the social determinants of health.
TELUS Health for Good
The Telus Mobile Primary Care Bus (previously Telus Mobile Health Bus) is a part of the TELUS Health for Good program which helps connect underserved individuals to the heath care they need across Canada. The Bus is equipped with TELUS Health’s electronic medical record (EMR) and TELUS Wi-Fi. This means that medical and mental health data can be collected and stored over time and offer better continuity of care for patients who previously had undocumented health histories.

Bus Team Members
The Bus is staffed with a Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse and two social support workers. The bus is also supported by Infectious Disease Physician, Dr. Steingart, who offers Hepatitis C treatment right off of the Bus
