Grand re-opening of Tri-City Health Center Mowry Clinic
Submitted By Donald Dynes
Tri-City Health Center, in partnership with the Leadership Fremont Class of 2012 (a program of the Fremont Chamber of Commerce), set a goal of raising $25,000 to furnish and decorate the two pediatric exam rooms and child-friendly space in the waiting area. The new exam rooms are expected to help Tri-City Health Center serve as many as an additional 5,000 children each year.
On April 11, Tri-City Health Center and the Leadership Fremont Class of 2012 will present the re-opening of the Tri-City Health Center Mowry Clinic. The event will celebrate the refurbishment of pediatric areas which will serve hundreds of children in the Tri-Cities.
"It's our hope that the refurbished Mowry Clinic will be a place where Tri-City Health Center can continue to provide much-needed health services to uninsured children in our community," said Don Tynes of Kaiser Permanente, the Leadership Fremont class's project manager.
Confirmed major sponsors of the project include Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty ($15,000 in Measure A discretionary funds); Washington Hospital Healthcare System, which donated two exam tables priced at almost $10,000; Welch Allyn, which supplied more than $7,000 worth of equipment for the pediatric exam rooms; and Kaiser Permanente, which is sponsoring the project at the $5,000 level. Class members have collected almost $10,000 in other donations from local individuals, companies, and service organizations.
