Anchor Institution presentations to San Mateo Hospital Board and Health Plan 


Large institutions can make a big difference in the economic opportunity of local residents and businesses.  Aligning business needs with our mission using the Anchor Institution model has been an area of exploration for County Health for the last two years. With interest from the San Mateo County Hospital Board and the San Mateo Health Plan, our Get Healthy SMC team recently presented the Anchor model and shared ways we are currently putting the concept into practice. We highlighted our local farm to cafeteria program at the San Mateo County Medical Center and our Emergency Medical Services Corps program to train disadvantaged San Mateo County youth for emergency response careers. Thanks to the Health Plan and SMMC for wanting to expand their knowledge and engage in new strategies! If you’d like a presentation on the Anchor Model please contact Belen Seara at
