Clinic planning and development project in Oakland

Owner Decision Making

The seminar on April 5th was very helpful in establishing connections for our clinic project. My colleagues and I (3 doctors and two consultants) are in the initial stages of planning, and have just applied for a development grant with the California HealthCare Foundation. We see over 100 patients a day at our 8,000 sf facility at 411 Grand Avenue near Lake Merritt in Oakland. Our ultimate goal is to expand it and make it a safety-net clinic that can provide affordable care for the community in this area.
