OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

For many Opelika residents, whenever they need medical care they head to the emergency room. Now, city officials are trying to get the care to travel to the residents.

The city of Opelika, Auburn University, and the East Alabama Medical Center are coming together to address communities in Opelika that need greater access to healthcare. The city wants to introduce a mobile wellness clinic.

Right now they have a bus that was donated, however it’s a long way from becoming a mobile clinic. The city said it’ll cost around $200,000 to get this clinic on the road.

“We think it's very important that all of our citizens have an opportunity to participate and have an ownership of this clinic, whether they give $1 or $5 or $25,000. We want folks to participate and be a part of it," said Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller. "The sooner we can raise the money and get the clinic ready, get the bus prepared, then the sooner we will be out there serving people and helping folks."

Once the clinic is up and running, EAMC will provide the medical services in the clinic. Donations can be made at the EAMC website or by calling Opelika City Administrator Joey Motley at 334-705-5152.
