With a goal to raise over $150,000, this signature fundraising event will support NCHS’ commitment to expanding healthcare access to the medically underserved. All proceeds of the 2020 Passion for Healing Gala will support the purchase of a new, state-of-the-art, mobile medical/dental unit to serve our patients with significant barriers, most especially those with a lack of transportation. This new clinic on wheels will provide medical and dental services to the hard to reach populations throughout North San Diego County.
NCHS recently completed a triannual community health needs assessment and the top concern that was regularly identified by patients, community members, social service agencies, schools, and other stakeholders was access to care. Out of all of the needs identified, access was by far the number one concern for the northern San Diego community. While NCHS has taken great strides to address our patients’ access to care and the current barriers present, the findings from the needs assessment indicate that we must do more.
This project will result in greater access to high quality healthcare, fewer disparities in care, and better preventive care that is timely and responsive to the needs of North San Diego County’s most vulnerable residents.
