HEALING OUR HEALTHCARE HEROES
Resilience is something each of us have had to embrace since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite feeling strained, healthcare workers at San Mateo Medical Center still want to care for the vulnerable citizens of our county. To do this, they need our help. Let’s start by giving them a boost and supporting the Healing Our Healthcare Heroes program.

KELLER CENTER FOR FAMILY VIOLENCE INTERVENTION
The Keller Center for Family Violence Intervention is a unique, multi-disciplinary, nationally recognized clinic in San Mateo Medical Center. It serves the needs of victims of child physical and sexual abuse and neglect, adult sexual abuse, domestic violence and elder abuse. The clinic provides a compassionate, culturally sensitive, family-oriented experience for victims of abuse, minimizing trauma and maximizing outcomes.
The Keller Center currently treats over 500 victims per year and provides services to over 1,200 community members in need. Victims come from every city in San Mateo County, with no geographic or socioeconomic barrier. 60 percent of the victims are children.
RON ROBINSON SENIOR CARE CENTER
Ron Robinson Senior Care Center, located on the first floor of San Mateo Medical Center, is a unique outpatient clinic for seniors, family members and caregivers, offering comprehensive services and a multi-disciplinary approach to optimal health. From psychiatry to podiatry, a team of primary care physicians, nurses, specialists, and mental health professionals treat patients in one location.
BUNDLE OF JOY
The arrival of a new baby begins another chapter in the life of a family. For many families, the expected birth of a child is an exciting and joyful experience. However, for many new parents who are living at or below the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), this time can be quite unsettling and even daunting from a financial perspective. The San Mateo County Health Foundation in partnership with San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) launched the Bundle of Joy Program in 2010 to assist these new parents as they begin the journey of starting a family.
The Caring Hands in Health program launched during the COVID-19 pandemic as a compassionate way to provide immediate assistance to patients in dire need. If you are a provider that works at a San Mateo Medical Center clinic, either on the main campus or offsite, you can submit a HIPAA compliant application on behalf of a patient. Examples of items that can be given to patients who cannot receive help via insurance include accessibility gear, groceries, babycare supplies, etc.
BREAST HEALTH OUTREACH & SUPPORT
San Mateo County Health Foundation is partnering with San Mateo Medical Center to provide access to the best possible breast cancer information and diagnostic tools for the underserved residents in San Mateo County.
EQUIPMENT FOR THE SAN MATEO MEDICAL CENTER
Donations to the Foundation can help finance new equipment purchases for San Mateo Medical Center. Having access to innovative technology is crucial to the mission of providing the best possible care to over 70,000 patients every year.
