AltaMed’s Community Response to COVID-19

AltaMed has created a Community Response to keep our communities and patients safe and healthy as well as address the clinical and non-clinical implications of an outbreak. We need your support. We can’t do this alone. Click here to donate.

AltaMed is launching a three-pronged plan, which will:

  1. Increase staffing and supply additional equipment across 34 medical and PACE sites. This includes both clinic and support staff (e.g., non-medical staff for phone banks);
  2. Expand community triage capabilities, including “drive-through testing,” a nurse advice line, and home visits for our most at-risk patients;
  3. Extend clinical hours for Urgent Care and Clinical Sites.

Cost of AltaMed’s Community Response

AltaMed is projecting at least $600,000 per day in additional expenses over four weeks (or as long as necessary), with an estimated total of $16.8M.

While this is a substantial amount, AltaMed recognizes that gifts of all sizes will help one neighbor at a time.

AltaMed cannot do this alone. Please join us to help our community get through this public health crisis.
