SAN MATEO COUNTY HEALTH FOUNDATION
June 29, 2011

We are a small group of concerned citizens of San Mateo County who work together to improve health care delivery and access to all regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. We raise funds for diverse programs and equipment, such as The Keller Center for victims of domestic violence, The Ron Robinson Center for Geriatric care and The Bundle of Joy program which gives greatly needed medical advice, clothes and blankets for newborn babies and their mothers. Our most recent undertaking is to raise funds for a digital mammogram machine to improve the technology needed to diagnose breast cancer at its earliest and most curable stage, saving both lives and further health care costs.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

directly observing where our funds are spent, in the improvement and continuity of the programs listed above and in the equipment we have purchased previously such as a new CT scanner and electronic medical record for outpatient care.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase the number of Board members and have greater partnership with our neighboring corporations who may not know that we even exist, yet that we will provide care to their work force in cases of emergency when they are brought by ambulance to our Hospital!

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I am a physician and Board member who has made many wonderful friends through this group!.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

knowing patients who have received care at The Ron Robinson Geriatric Center, The Keller Center for domestic violence, the Fair Oaks Pediatric Clinic all of whom have benefited from our Foundation's donations.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting other altruistic members of our community, engaging in truly important work of providing health care to all those who need it and seek our services.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all kinds! We are young, old, and every age in between!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do so many more things! Provide more counseling for family members of victims of domestic violence, continue our attempt to buy an in-patient electronic medical record, get a new stress test treadmill machine,increase mental health treatment,etc. etc!
