Mobile has developed some of its most beneficial programs in conjunction with
other organizations. These joint ventures allow us to expand our reach and care.
We have successfully combined our efforts with:|

1995 and now operating at thirteen sites in San Mateo County, delivers physical

South County Community Health
Clinic in East Palo Alto
In December 2001, the South County Community Health
Clinic opened its doors to begin providing medical care and health outreach to
the people of East Palo Alto, Belle Haven, and Fair Oaks. The facility provides
primary health care and human services, particularly to the most vulnerable populations,
the elderly and children. Patients also benefit from preventative physical and
mental health services and neo-natal and infant care. In the first four months
of its operations, the clinic treated more than 1,000 patients and hosted 100
meetings focused on community issues.
Due to the requests of various organizations,
Health Mobile was selected as a solution to enhance S.C.C.H.C. service and was
approached by Stanford and Lucile Packard to provide free dental care at the site.
Currently, Health Mobile is stationed at the Clinic twice per month to add dental
services-including cleanings, fillings, root canals and extractions-to the array
of services provided at the facility. On average, thirty-two East Palo Alto residents
are treated each month.
