Alameda County



Operation Access (OA) has served Alameda County community clinic patients since 1997. Through our work with local physicians, hospitals and medical centers, hundreds of people in need receive vital surgical and specialty care free of charge every year. Despite the Affordable Care Act, those who remain uninsured continue to depend on community programs when they are ill or injured.  Our volunteers and supporters share our belief that the entire community is well served when those most vulnerable receive care.
