RotaCare is a volunteer-driven organization that provides free health care for the uninsured and underserved in our community.
The Big Idea
RotaCare Monterey Clinic provides free healthcare to uninsured residents of Monterey County. The clinic normally operates out of the Seaside Family Health Center with a team of volunteer doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, physical therapists, registered dietitians, scribes, clerical staff, Spanish-language interpreters and a stress counselor. Patients with urgent
and chronic medical conditions are provided free appointments, diagnostic tests, diabetic supplies, and medication management,
along with referrals to specialists and social services providers as needed. Through these unprecedented times of Covid-19, the clinic has continued to be an essential resource for community members by converting to a weekly telehealth clinic, enabling the continued delivery of basic healthcare services during this health crisis.
I had pain in my left side of my waist. I was refer to RotaCare Clinic by a Mobile Clinic located close to Denis the Menace playground. I was worried because I don’t have insurance or any income that will make me qualify for using the clinic, but they were very friendly and help at the time I really need it. My mother was also in pain from her heel, I believe she was injured from walking. It got infected and I took her to the clinic, we were both impressed how everybody were very attentive with my mom, even sent her some exams so they know beside the injury what else she had. My mom and I have diabetes and we are very grateful with RotaCare. We don’t know what we would have done without you. Thank you for everything that you have done for us.
