Caring Hands in Health assists the countyʼs most vulnerable patients at San Mateo Medical Centerʼs hospital and clinics. We provide patients with financial assistance to enable them and their families to fulfill their needs quickly and in a dignified manner, improving healthcare access for at-risk populations in our community.
Caring Hands in Health is a compassionate way to provide immediate assistance to patients in dire need and has become one of our most sought-after programs. Any San Mateo Medical Center staff member or provider can submit a HIPAA compliant application on behalf of a patient.
The foundation provides financial assistance for basic needs like groceries and accessibility equipment, medical billing assistance with prescriptions and insurance deductibles, emergency housing assistance, and meal plans for seniors.
