Letter from the Executive Director
Dear Clients, Partners and Community Members,
As you know, our nation has faced tough economic times over the past few years, which have been devastating to many low-income families. Brookside Community Health Center has helped our families overcome these challenges by increasing services, and providing quality care to a record number of clients.
Last year alone, we served nearly 18,000 clients, held several health fairs, and expanded our adult medicine, pediatric and dental services. We also completed the renovation of our San Pablo location and completed the implementation of an innovative electronic health records management system.
Now more than ever before, Brookside Community Health Center plays a critical role in the well-being of Contra Costa residents. As many people are finding themselves without insurance, Brookside is the bridge across this rough patch. Therefore, we are continually looking for new and better ways to ser you. Our newest venture is our merger with LifeLong Medical Care. We are excited about the transition and look forward to maintaining our delivery of high quality services as a new entity of LifeLong Medical Care. Please stay tuned for more information about our merger.
To our physicians, nurses, medical assistants, office staff, volunteers and board members, thank you for your unwavering dedication. To the people, foundations, community partners, and businesses who support our work, thank you for your generous contributions. To our thousands of clients, thank you for trusting us with your health and the health of your families. It is a privilege to serve.
