Operation Access (OA) has served San Mateo County community clinic patients since 2001. 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.
OA accepts referrals from all primary care providers. We are a primary resource for:
Ravenswood Family Health Center
RotaCare Free Clinics (Coastside, Daly City)
Samaritan House Free Clinics (Redwood City, San Mateo)
San Mateo Medical Center Clinics
Partner Hospitals and Ambulatory Care Centers:
Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers
