To promote healing and comforting environments, the Foundation has sponsored the creation and installation of several original artworks at CCRMC & Health Centers.
A successful and innovative internship program managed by our Public Health staff has expanded to a second high school in West Contra Costa County this year. This program is now being offered to Health Academy students at Richmond and DeAnza High Schools.
CCRHF helped manage the funding for this fellowship collaboration between Contra Costa Regional Medical Center residency program and the division of Global Health & Human Rights among others. The goal was to improve health care and health education in rural Kenya at Sagam Community Hospital.
CCRHF supports the nationally recognized Contra Costa Regional Medical Center residency program which trains new doctors.
Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports Contra Costa Health Services in its work to care for and improve the health of all the people in Contra Costa County with special attention to those who are the most vulnerable.
The Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation was established in 2003 to increase community awareness of the work performed by Contra Costa Regional Medical Center & Health Centers, which is part of Contra Costa Health Services, the county-operated health system.
The hospital and its 10 health centers have become an acclaimed model for integrated healthcare delivery, and our 140,000-member health plan was the first publicly supported, federally qualified HMO in the United States. Our university-affiliated residency program attracts graduate medical students from all over the nation, and our system is also Contra Costa's sole provider of 24-hour psychiatric emergency services.
As an independent nonprofit, the Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation channels funds from our community to support diverse and critically needed programs within Contra Costa Health Services. The Foundation is the major fund raising vehicle to support the long-range needs of the Hospital and Health Centers. Please join us in our efforts to promote and enhance health in Contra Costa County.
