Sonoma County

Many of the patients referred to OA live in rural areas in Sonoma, often work in agriculture, and have no health insurance benefits through their employers. Since Operation Access began serving residents of Sonoma County in 2001, 1088 patients have received donated surgical and specialty care.

Currently, five medical centers, four medical groups, 95 active medical volunteers, and twelve referring community clinics participate in our program. In addition, Operation Access is proud to collaborate with the Sonoma County Medical Association's Specialty Access Initiative, whose mission is to improve access to specialty care among the low-income population in Sonoma County.
