Truck trailers have been turned into portable doctors’ offices by World Housing Solution and Florida Hospital and sent to Puerto Rico. Florida Hospitals’ Scott Bond says the mobile clinics will allow local physicians to provide general and dental care while conferring with physicians from around the world as needed.
