  • The Board of Supervisors attended a special thank you reception to honor the donors who helped make the new Fair Oaks Health Center a reality on Monday night. A special tribute was paid to the Sequoia Healthcare District for their generous capital gift of $4.3 M this year. This one-time gift represents 50% of their annual operating budget and indicates the level of commitment they have made to improve the quality of health care in the district. This gift is in addition to the annual $1M operational funding commitment that Sequoia Healthcare District provides to offset the cost of providing care to the uninsured in southern San Mateo County. Their generosity is unparalleled. Their gift also helped encourage local corporations, foundations and individuals to help fund this beautiful, functional and state-of-the-art facility. Donors were given sneak preview tours of the clinic by leadership staff. The Center will be open for patient care on December 16. Thank you, Sequoia Healthcare District!
