Fulfilling Our LifeLong Promise

Warm people Who can also treat fever and chills

Friendly faces Who can also treat asthma

LifeLong Medical Care Annual Report 2015

Dear LifeLong Supporter: I want to share with you a few of the challenges faced at LifeLong Medical Care this year. Health care reform has brought welcome coverage to many of our patients who were previously uninsured. The medical education system, however, does not produce enough primary care providers to provide access to care for everyone. We continue to hire Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants and expand responsibilities of our medical team members to respond to this reality. We are also exploring pipeline programs that help prepare our youth for health professions and have added our own Nurse Practitioner Residency Program at LifeLong.


Health care in the future will pay for value. We are driven to show value through data, whether it be data related to quality, patient engagement; or total cost of care. We are working to reinforce our sophistication in using data so that we can keep up with these changes. We continue to also improve our use of technology in our care delivery.

Kevin D. Williams, Board Chair James Johnson, Jr., Vice Chair Scott Sporte, Treasurer Nancy Threatt, Secretary Ron Adler, Past Chair

We know that where a person lives determines much about their health care. LifeLong is paid to provide direct health care services. We will continue to partner with the public health departments, our health promoters, and community partners to do all that we can to make our communities (outside of the exam room or operatory) a healthier place.


Now onto our accomplishments and upcoming news:

• LifeLong Ashby Health Center recently opened at the Ed Roberts Campus in South Berkeley. • The TRUST Health Center, a partnership with Alameda County, will be serving General Assistance recipients. It opened late Fall in Downtown Oakland. • In January, the LifeLong Dr. William Jenkins Health Center will be moving to a newly built health center on Harbour Way in Richmond. • LifeLong established an Immediate/Urgent Care Center at our Brookside Health Center, across the street from Doctor’s Medical Center. This came about as a result of Doctor’s Medical Center, a community-based hospital located in San Pablo, closing its doors this summer. • Another LifeLong Immediate/Urgent Care Center just opened in Berkeley, on Dwight Way. • We received a federal grant to add dental and medical services in Pinole and Rodeo. We expect services to kick off in December or January. We want to be able to serve all of West Contra Costa, and the closure of Doctor’s Medical Center means additional services are sorely needed. Each new site is designed to help our community and complement what we already provide. Next year, we will be celebrating our 40-year anniversary. We’ve come a long way and provided thousands of people with high-quality health care and social services over the years. For instance, during our 2014-2015 Fiscal Year (July 1, 2014June 30, 2015), we provided 46,249 people with much-needed care. As we take you “behind the scenes” of our 15 health centers and the many programs offered at LifeLong this past year, you will see within the Annual Report that many of our 682 staff members have been working here for years. They too are dedicated and committed to “fulfilling our LifeLong promise” to underserved communities. Thank you for being part of our community and continuing to support LifeLong. We can’t do it without you. Sincerely,

Marty Lynch, PhD, MPA Executive Director/CEO

Over the next few pages, you’ll read about our staff and patients, both sharing their stories about how we’re helping our Alameda, Contra Costa and Marin-based communities to be healthy – and stay healthy. Many of the people we serve each year cannot afford health care. This is why we have 15 health centers and offer many programs for our communities. The overall approach to all-access care gives people the necessary support they desperately need and deserve. Here’s a little more about LifeLong Medical Care and what we do each and every day – and every year.

LifeLong Immediate/Urgent Care Centers San Pablo and Berkeley

LifeLong saw the need and opened two Immediate/Urgent Care Centers within West Contra Costa County and Alameda County. This kind of care is an alternative to the Emergency Room for minor illnesses and injuries. At LifeLong, we are committed to providing prompt, professional, and cost effective medical care for both adult and pediatric patients. We provide treatment of conditions which require immediate medical attention (usually within 24 hours), but are not life-threatening or serious enough to require hospitalization.

“I feel gratified when I have helped a patient either with their insurance issue or a problem they have had with their doctor. I love resolving issues and always feel grateful when a patient tells me thank you. I love it!” ­– Linda Collins, Patient Services Director, LifeLong Employee (20 years)

When sick or injured, people come to LifeLong regardless of their ability to pay or their insurance status, and we provide them with the medical care they need –and deserve.

“My favorite part of working in Patient Services is helping someone who never had insurance gain access. It is very rewarding when people realize they have access to more than just medical care.” ­– Mayra Lopez, Patient Services Advocate, LifeLong Employee (2 years)

LifeLong Health Centers

East Oakland and Downtown Oakland LifeLong East Oakland Health & Wellness Center and the LifeLong Downtown Oakland Health Center are continually evolving to meet the needs of our patients and the surrounding community. We provide not only primary care and chronic disease screening and management at these health centers, but also mental health services, podiatry, acupuncture, health education and social services.

“The work we do is sometimes the one positive thing in our clients’ lives. All people deserve care and compassion regardless of their situation. By providing support, housing and resources we are able to actually improve and save lives and allow people the chance to live with dignity.” ­– B renda Goldstein, Psychosocial Services Director, LifeLong Employee (9 years)

Rosilyne started a Durable Medical Equipment Closet four years ago. These donated items are given out to patients in an effort to address the needs of our East Oakland community.

“I can honestly say LifeLong Medical Care is hands down the best employer I’ve ever had. LifeLong East Oakland Health Center has allowed me opportunities to grow, give back and support patients in ways that extend beyond the health center’s doors. Treating the whole individual, in addition to their illness, is what it’s all about. LifeLong does that and more, which is the epitome of quality patient care.” – Rosilyne Wright, Elder Care Coordinator, LifeLong Employee (4 years)

LifeLong Dental Care Berkeley Center

We provide dental hygiene, exams and regular screenings, fillings, dentures and extractions. Knowing that not everyone likes to visit the dentist, we try our best to combat people’s fears by sharing our warm and friendly smiles.

Brookside San Pablo Center We provide preventive, restorative, and emergency care for children ages (2-17), as well as for adults. All of our patients receive education and information about good oral health and disease prevention strategies. It’s just another way of helping to keep people healthy.

As Dental Director, Dr. Barakzoy constantly thinks of ways to keep the community as our main focus.

LifeLong Health Centers Over 60 Health Center

LifeLong Medical Care’s story began here more than 39 years ago with the unwavering belief that continues to guide the organization today– that all people have the right to receive the healthcare and support they need. The year was 1976, in Berkeley, where the senior population faced a growing unmet need for health services. Enter a small group of Gray Panthers, whose members created an innovative solution– a milestone in elder care: the Over 60 Health Center. We provide many services including: primary care, chronic disease screenings, and mental health and social services for patients 60 years and older.

“As I approach the front door of the health center each morning, I can’t help but smile as I know I will be greeted on the other side by patients that have allowed me into their lives, to share their joys and suffering, for the last 18 years. I know this human connection is a privilege and I will be forever grateful to our patients to be the recipient of this, their gift.” – Alison Roberts, Certified Nurse Midwife, LifeLong Employee (18 years)

Ashby Health Center LifeLong Ashby Health Center opened this year, located above the Ashby BART Station in the Ed Roberts Campus, in South Berkeley. Patients have access to a wide variety of providers and resources, such as primary care, women’s health services (including prenatal care), mental health services, HIV/AIDS testing and treatment, acupuncture and podiatry.

West Berkeley Health Center A $2.1 million capital campaign was completed in 2014 to help accommodate the growing number of patients who are in need of our services. We provide primary care for both adults and children, women’s health services including pre- and post-natal care, and mental health services. A few of the outreach programs offered on site are, diabetes, cooking, and Zumba classes. We also offer a Centering Program for new mothers.

SPECIAL RECOGNITION LifeLong Medical Care and Gillian Fynn, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), at LifeLong West Berkeley are honored to have received the 2015 Community Partner Award from the University of California, Berkeley School of Social Welfare. The School of Social Welfare makes two awards to community partners each year, one to the agency that has provided University of California students with the best learning opportunities, and one individual award for field instructor excellence. 2015 represents the first year an agency and an individual (from that agency) have received both awards.

LifeLong Health Centers

Richmond, Brookside San Pablo and Brookside Richmond We are dedicated to helping each patient live a healthy productive life in Contra Costa County. In addition to medical care, we offer a range of patient education and outreach services for all ages.

Kristof Kaminski, Physician Assistant, makes his way down the halls of LifeLong Brookside San Pablo.

“We serve a marginalized population of seniors who, for the most part of their lives have lived within the social confines of poverty. Most of these seniors have never been afforded the opportunity to participate in artistic forms of expression. I’m inspired by the joy, excitement and passion the seniors display while performing in a play for the first time.” ­– L a Juana Clark, SNAP Project Coordinator, LifeLong Employee (14 years)

Nora Vigil, Patient Services Advocate, is always ready to sign up new patients for health coverage!

“I’m very blessed working at LifeLong. It has enabled me to work with lower income populations within our West Contra Costa County community. Also, working with people who do not have access is really important to me because health care should be a right, not a privilege.”

Senior Network and Activity Program (SNAP) is funded by the Contra Costa Mental Health Department. This program provides seniors living in public housing with social and recreational activities, including monthly outings and weekly classes in art, music, tai chi, exercise, mindfulness and more.

LifeLong’s Dr. William Jenkins Pediatric Center is located in Richmond. We continue the groundbreaking and community-building practices of Dr. William Jenkins, who had the pleasure of seeing two and three generations of patients come to him for treatment and care through the age of 18. We will be moving to a new health center this Winter to better accommodate the incoming patients who need our medical and social services.

Brookside Richmond and Brookside San Pablo Brookside Community Health Centers merged with LifeLong Medical Care in 2012. At both health centers, we provide primary care, pre- and post-natal care, pediatrics, health education, social services, and patient advocacy.

LifeLong Adult Day Health Center Marin Adult Day Health Center

At LifeLong Marin Adult Day Health Center we’re here to help people – and their caregivers. We’re the only Adult Day Health Center in Marin County to provide care to the frail and elderly through our health and social programs. These programs are designed to promote wellbeing in a safe and supportive environment. We offer services Monday through Friday, which not only helps our participants to live at home but also gives their caregivers much needed respite. We also provide door-to-door transportation for all of our Marin-based participants.

I love being a part of this community!” ­– J oe Lee, Program Manager, Community HealthCorps & Volunteer Services, LifeLong Employee (5 years)
