Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation
CCRHF actively supports the Art of Health and Healing philosophy and programs. The newly established Farmers' Market at the Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez is funded in part by CCRHF. The Farmers' Market runs 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays from April through September.
CCRHF helped manage the funding for this fellowship collaboration between Contra Costa Regional Medical Center residency program and the division of Global Health & Human Rights among others. The goal was to improve health care and health education in rural Kenya at Sagam Community Hospital.
CCRHF supports the nationally recognized Contra Costa Regional Medical Center residency program which trains new doctors.
Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports Contra Costa Health Services to care for and improve the health of all the people in Contra Costa County with special attention to those who are the most vulnerable.
The Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation was established in 2003 to increase awareness of the work that is being performed by Contra Costa Regional Medical Center and the Contra Costa Health Centers to the broader Contra Costa community.
The Contra Costa hospital and health centers are an acknowledged state and national model with an integrated healthcare delivery system consisting of 10 health centers located in East, Central and West County. It is the only system with a university-affiliated residency-training program and is considered to be one of the top ten in the U.S. - attracting graduate medical students from all over the nation. It is the only healthcare system in Contra Costa County that provides 24-hour, 7 days-a-week Psychiatric Emergency Services to all residents of the County. The Contra Costa Health Plan was the first publicly supported, federally qualified HMO in the United States, currently serving over 140,000 members, of which 9,000 are county employees and their families.
As an independent nonprofit, the Contra Costa Regional Health Foundation channels funds from our community to support diverse and critically needed programs within Contra Costa Health Services. We maintain active partnerships with local and national foundations and corporations and have hosted fundraising events in years past.
The founding directors understood the critical need for the services provided by the Contra Costa Health Services and in creating the Foundation established an opportunity for all residents of this county to contribute. The Foundation is the major fund raising vehicle to support the long-range needs of the Hospital and Health Centers. Please join us in this effort.
