Peninsula Health Care District
Health Care Districts are public entities that provide community-based health care services to residents throughout the state. They respond to the needs in their District by providing a wide range of services, which many include a hospital and nursing facilities, as well as education and wellness programs. Each of California’s Health Care Districts are governed by a locally elected Board of Trustees who are directly accountable to the communities they serve today.
The Peninsula Health Care District cares for the health of our communities by supporting community-based programs and partnerships, and investing in health care facilities for future generations. Over the past several years, the District Board has approved funding to address a broad range of health care needs by investing in several important initiatives:
The Trousdale – coming to Burlingame in 2018, The Trousdale is an assisted living and memory care facility, owned by PHCD and operated by Eskaton
Apple Tree Dental – an innovative dental care model that removes barriers to access for the elderly and special needs adults
Teen Mental Health Project– a three-year school-based mental health program serving 8,500 students
Peninsula Wellness Community– 8.32 acre community offering housing for older adults, health support across generations, and working spaces for professionals and researchers
Annual Community Grants Program – PHCD has invested more than $35 million since the Community Grants program began in 1996 to address current health needs
