AltaMed Opens First-of-its-Kind Health Care Center in the Nation
Date:8/22/2008

Monte is one of the poorest and most underserved areas in Los Angeles County. A total of 41% of the population lives at less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. AltaMed built the new Family Health and Wellness Center from the ground up and expanded its services to address the tremendous need for medical care in El Monte and surrounding communities. The center can eventually accommodate up to 58,000 patient visits a year.

"The opening of the AltaMed Family Health and Wellness Center serves as a powerful example of what dedicated advocates can do to minimize the effects of our health care crisis on our most vulnerable populations. For more than 39 years, AltaMed has served as a passionate champion on this issue," said Congresswoman Hilda Solis, 32nd District. "I am proud to stand here with them today to celebrate what will be a treasured resource in our community."

The state-of-the-art center, financed with a combination of government resources, private foundations and individual donors, features a full service clinic, completely digital dental technology, electronic medical records, a new x-ray room, general surgery services (outpatient and non-invasive procedures) and smart chip equipment for physical therapy. To ensure patients are seen in an efficient and effective manner, a lighting system will monitor visits from the moment they enter the treatment rooms to the moment they leave. The system allows AltaMed professionals to know the exact stage of a patient's visit and eliminates the need to rely on public address systems or walkie-talkies.

The senior services offered at the El Monte Family Health and Wellness Center are administered at the adjoining AltaMed Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) Center. The ADHC is designed to offer adults 18 years and older a wide array of programs and services that include transportation to and from the ADHC, nursing care, individual counseling, physical, occupational and speech therapy, recreational activities,
