Regardless of the facility, PCHS is providing medical and behavioral health care to these people for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. PCHS has their mobile medical and behavioral health teams located at the Kitsap Fairgrounds. PCHS is also onsite at the Salvation Army facility in Bremerton. At these two locations, PCHS is providing medical and behavioral health (mental and substance use) treatment to each homeless individual who wants to engage in treatment. Normally, PCHS sees these same patients at their clinics. Seeing them in the field costs much more, and is more risky than seeing them in their offices, but helps prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the homeless community.
