We have completed a multiple-year capital campaign, raising just over $7 million in the midst of a global pandemic. Thanks to the generous support of individuals, businesses, foundations and government entities, Marin Community Clinics has opened two new clinics and is in process of expanding another.
Profound thanks to the Campaign for the Next Decade Leadership Group for helping Marin Community Clinics reach this milestone! Kathy King & Jerry Cahill, Susan & Dennis Gilardi, Becky & Jerry Oken, and Linda & Frank Tavaszi championed the cause and were instrumental in garnering support for the campaign. Our gratitude to the Leadership Group, and to each capital campaign donor, is profound.
With these investments, a new facility (the Dennis & Susan Gilardi Medical Clinic) opened in Greenbrae in 2021; a new telehealth-focused medical and behavioral health clinic opened in West San Rafael in 2022, and the expansion and renovation of our 4th Street Dental Clinic in San Rafael will be completed early next year.
1. Respond to Marin’s Burgeoning Dental Need
The Clinics need more chairs to boost access to dental services. “We’re learning that more and more patients – including children and older adults – have delayed visiting the dentist for several years,” explained Connie Kadera, DDS, Chief Dental Officer. “Regular dental care is essential to overall health and well-being.”
2. Increase Adult Care, Including Services for Older Adults
To better serve Marin’s booming population of older adults, we’ve opened a clinic in Greenbrae that is conveniently located near MarinHealth Medical Center and several specialists. With 11 state-of-the-art exam rooms and counseling and education rooms, our multi-disciplinary team addresses the complex needs of adults, including older adults.
3. Expand and Enhance Medical and Behavioral Health Services
To improve patient experiences and access to care, including telehealth services, the medical and behavioral health clinic will improve access to patients living in San Rafael, San Anselmo, Fairfax, and surrounding areas. It also serves as the Clinics’ innovation center – a space to pilot program improvements, expand telehealth services, and more.
