Caring Hands In Health

Caring Hands in Health extends vital support to the most vulnerable patients within San Mateo Medical Center’s hospital and clinics. Our mission is to swiftly address the needs of these patients and their families with dignity, thereby enhancing healthcare accessibility for at-risk populations in our community.


Recognized as one of our most indispensable programs, Caring Hands in Health embodies compassion by offering immediate assistance to those in dire circumstances. Any member of the San Mateo Medical Center staff or provider can initiate support by submitting a HIPAA-compliant application on behalf of a patient.


Our foundation offers financial aid for essential needs such as groceries and accessibility equipment, assists with medical billing including prescriptions and insurance deductibles, provides emergency housing aid, and implements specialized meal plans for seniors.
