TCHC Awarded Kaiser Grant for Increasing Access to Care Project

Fremont, Calif. — Tri-City Health Center is proud to announce it has been awarded a $40,000 grant by Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Grants Program to help support TCHC’s Increasing Access to Care Project.

The Project aims to increase access to healthcare programs and non-medical services for more than 5,000 low-income Fremont-area community members. Using Tri-City Health Center’s Outreach Team, the project will increase access to healthcare services for the most vulnerable members of Southern Alameda County.

With more than 25,000 patients, TCHC offers comprehensive health care services, which include dental, vision and behavioral health. TCHC serves a diverse population, which includes 91 percent of patients living at or below 200% the poverty level. TCHC offers services in 21 languages and dialects, including Spanish, Mandarin and Farsi.

The Increase Access to Care Project continues Tri-City Health Center’s mission of delivering excellent health services in a caring, nurturing and respectful atmosphere.
