The mission is to promote and champion the health and well being of all residents of our community, regardless of ability to pay, primarily through supporting excellence and innovation in the County's hospital and clinic system.
San Mateo County Health Foundation is forging solutions to the Healthcare Crisis. Through our partnership with San Mateo Medical Center, we aim to meet the Board of Supersvisor's vision of health and safety for all and access to care for all residents. In June 2008, over 67,000 adults in San Mateo County had no health insurance. In 2010, with rising unemployment and benefit cut-backs, the number of uninsured is escalating. San Mateo Medical Center provides over 95% of the care for the uninsured/underinsured in our county. In the first half of 2010, demand for enrollment in the ACE program (county-funded healthcare) increased 41% over the past year. Emergency room use increased 15%. Currently, San Mateo Medical Center serves over 80,000 unique patients, with over 250,000 patients visits per year. There are more than 5,000 new clients waiting up to one year for a primary care appointment. The trend is expected to continue. Without San Mateo Medical Center, the burden would be placed on private hospitals by overloading emergency rooms, the provider of last resort for those who cannot afford medical care.
