AltaMed Health Services Has Been Working To Eliminate Disparities In Health Care And Outcomes In Southern California Since 1969
To eliminate disparities in health care access and outcomes by providing superior quality health and human services through an integrated world-class delivery system for Latino, multi-ethnic and underserved communities in Southern California.
Nancy Gallardo, the AltaMed Medical and Dental Group – Anaheim Dental Supervisor, explains, “we knew a lot of these patients would be nervous to see another dentist after what had happened, so we planned to go above and beyond for each of them. Even if they did not have an appointment, we would not turn away a single child that had been affected in this incident.” In the end, the Anaheim Dental Clinic saw 140 of the young patients that needed immediate dental services.
“Many of these families thanked us for such thorough care and have since become regular patients,” Nancy says. “While we are always happy to add new patients, we were simply thrilled to be able to serve our community in a moment of need.”
AltaMed will always be here as a medical home for those in need.
