Veteran opens new mobile family health care center in Cary

Center will offer the same level of care as a traditional doctor’s office

A Cary resident and Iraq War veteran opened a new family health care center in Cary last month in hopes of expanding health care options in the area.

Helen Muchow, an Army Reserve sergeant who served in Iraq as a military police officer, opened Complete Family Wellness inspired by her own military service and following over a decade of experience in the medical field, according to a news release.

“These are trying times. It is the reason I started this company. The health, safety and well-being of families is what matters when the world is at its most uncertain,” Muchow said in a statement.

The new business is a mobile health care service that will reach patients at their own homes with the same level of care as a traditional doctor’s office, according to the Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce. The center will offer more flexible scheduling options, and its staff will treat acute and chronic health issues, and conduct physical examples and some simple procedures as well.

Muchow is a disabled veteran and entered the medical field based on her personal experiences. She has worked in nursing for 12 years and has been working as a family practice nurse for the past five years.
