2-State Medical Clinic–“The Hope Van”–to Hit the Road with Mobile Unit

Situated in the northwest corner of Illinois and the southeast corner of Iowa, Quad Cities Pregnancy Resources is one organization spread across two sites and, as it happens, two states.

In July 2016, the number of locations will increase dramatically—depending on the day of the week, that is—once the organization gets its mobile ultrasound unit on the road.

The group’s executive director, Susan Skoklund, says the mobile unit—nicknamed “The Hope Van”—will start out operating three days a week with a plan to move to five days a week in five different locations.

Slated for a ribbon-cutting ceremony July 15, Skoglund is projecting the new addition to help the 26-year-old organization increase its already impressive suite of services that delivered over 3,000 unique points of assistance in 2015.
