In addition to the other programs outlined in this website, CPMC offers clinical and financial support for community clinics and organizations that address specific community health needs for underserved populations. CPMC provides grants to not-for-profit community-based health and social service organizations who serve the poor and underserved. Through the grant and sponsorship making process, CPMC forms partnerships with local organizations to provide care and supportive funding for our community.
CPMC supports more than 80 organizations that collectively serve more than a half million people. Highlighted below are two of our community partners.
Women’s Community Clinic
The Women’s Community Clinic has been serving Bay Area women and girls since 1999. The Women’s Community Clinic uses an innovative model of leveraging volunteers to provide affordable care and improve the health and well-being of women and girls. Through its partnership with CPMC the clinic is able to ensure critical diagnostic services to women with abnormal test results by referring patients to CPMC to receive gynecological ultrasounds. CPMC provides funding to cover the physician fees associated with the ultrasounds, in addition to the ultrasounds themselves. This partnership allows women to receive necessary and timely care that they might not otherwise have access to. (Photo: Kathi O'Leary)
