Coastal Health Alliance is the only safety-net provider in West Marin, a region comprised of seven unincorporated towns. As a non-profit health care organization with extensive operational and administrative needs, Coastal Health Alliance relies on the generosity of foundations, individuals and government agencies to fulfill our mission of providing compassionate, comprehensive, high quality health care to the entire community. Donations help us update our facilities, purchase the latest medical equipment and undertake special projects and initiatives.
With help from generous donors, CHA is building an exceptional health care experience for all West Marin residents. CHA has been adding new services, including nutrition therapy, integrated behavioral health, on-site cardiology consultations, insurance application support and more bilingual service providers. We are most pleased about our new Dental pilot program, bringing needed subsidized care to the area for the first time.
As agents of Health Reform, we seem to be in a continuous state of change, dedicated to improving health and ensuring a positive experience for patients. We are currently focused on a Team Care initiative, intended to optimize community access to our providers while improving staff satisfaction. CHA is poised to support West Marin residents through this exciting transition. We sincerely appreciate our generous donors and hope to have this ongoing support and engagement from the community.
