Rotacare Bay Area, Inc.

RotaCare Bay Area Inc. is a non profit 501(c)3 public benefit corporation that provides free medical care to people with the greatest need and the least access to medical care

The organization was formed in 1989 when a local Rotarian and his club identified the need of many local residents who had limited access to primary healthcare services.  They resolved to meet the need with a clinic in Santa Clara.  Since then, RotaCare Bay Area has grown to 12 clinics in Concord, Daly City, Gilroy, Half Moon Bay, Monterey, Pittsburg, San Jose, San Leandro, San Rafael, and Santa Cruz and a Stockton clinic to open in 2017  RotaCare Bay Area, Inc. offers quality healthcare services to those who are uninsured or under-insured.  We provide volunteer opportunities for those willing to share their time and flexible giving programs for those who can make monetary contributions.

RotaCare Bay Area, Inc. harnesses the skills and hearts of local physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacist, interpreters, social workers, and many others who volunteer their time to provide basic primary health services free of charge to the patient.  Our clinics are open one to three nights per week, often sharing a clinic location with a school health center or hospital clinic, but also located in community centers.  We are bound only by the number of volunteers we can recruit and finance because the need is ever present.  Currently, 95 percent of the patients we see are living at or below the federal poverty level, and last year we provided care to over 10,000 patient.

Without RotaCare, our patients would have no choice but to use hospital emergency rooms as their source of primary care.  Using hospital emergency room for non-emergency problems is not an efficient use of our health resources and drives healthcare costs up for all of us because the care for uninsured patients is passed on in higher health care premiums and out of pocket expenses.

The RotaCare Bay Area, Inc.  Board of Directors consists of doctors, pharmacists, health industry professionals, and civic-minded professionals who support our mission.  Our administrative office, located in the heart of Silicon Valley houses our administrative team who work to strengthen the organization's community health impact and future sustainability.
