Tiburcio Vasquez: committed to children's healthcare
Submitted By Luretha Senyo-Mensah
Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc., (TVHC), continues to meet the healthcare challenges facing our community. Thousands of children could lose access to care because of discontinuation of dental services at the Silva Pediatric Clinic and St. Rose Hospital's plans to restructure their medical services at that facility. TVHC and St. Rose Hospital have shared a common goal of improving our community's health by providing pediatric primary care.
TVHC is working to become the Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) partner with St. Rose Hospital to ensure children from low-income families will have continued access to quality primary healthcare. TVHC CEO Joel Garcia has assembled an Operations Team to review, assess and implement strategies on multi-faceted health-delivery systems.
We lead the community in primary and preventive care and strive to be foremost in fully implementing the complex, sweeping changes, of Health Reform by 2014, which includes how healthcare is delivered and financed. There are many challenges in central and southern Alameda County, including those now facing St. Rose Hospital which has been a long-term provider of much-needed in-patient and related care to the residents of our community.
TVHC is committed to excellent personal service, the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve.
