Officials preparing for loss of DTES Mobile Medical Unit (HUB)

Since mid-December, hundreds of people in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside have relied on the province's Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) for emergency treatment when suffering from an overdose.

Hundreds more have dropped in at the facility, which is set up at 58 West Hastings St., to ask about — or get started in — addiction treatment.

Daly added that the HUB, an emergency room expansion for mental health and addictions treatment scheduled to open up at St. Paul's this spring, will address some of the lost services when the MMU is moved.
