Contra Costa County

Operation Access began serving Contra Costa County residents in 1998. For many years, the referral volume was low and most OA patients were treated outside of the county. However, as a result of budget cuts in the county health system, many low-income, uninsured residents cannot receive care through the Basic Health Care program and referrals to OA have increased dramatically since 2009.

Currently, five medical centers, three medical groups, 355 medical volunteers and seven community clinics participate in the OA program.  In he past 12 years, 1135 low-income uninsured county residents have received donated surgical and specialty care through OA.

Medical volunteers warmly welcomed!
We especially need General Surgeons, Orthopedists, ENT, Gastroenterologists and Urologists. Let us know if you are a physician or know a physician who may be interested in making a difference in someone's life!

OA now coordinates regularly scheduled eye clinics in Contra Costa at the Special Procedures Center, Kaiser Permanente Martinez Medical Center. Dr. Naveen Chandra (KP Ophthalmologist) initiated the program, and has helped to secure the appropriate volunteers with the support of the Administration and staff at the facility. Through OA the volunteers will provide treatment for patients who suffer from pterygium, and cataracts.
