SANTA ROSA (KCBS)_ This Sunday Kaiser Permanente is hosting Neighbors in Health, a day of free health care to all uninsured children and teenagers in Sonoma County.
Kaiser’s Santa Rosa Physician in Chief Dr. Robert Schultz says the program has been enormously successful in the past, often diagnosing problems in young patients who do not have a regular doctor or clinic.
“We’ve found really significant problems in kids that we were able to remedy so they can go on to have healthy and productive lives and that’s been very satisfying. It’s a good day for the community. It’s a good day for improving the health care of Sonoma County,” said Schultz.
The program provides health screenings, physicals, and immunizations for all uninsured children, regardless of their immigrant status. All uninsured children and teenagers are welcome Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kaiser’s Stein Medical Campus at 3925 Old Redwood Highway in Santa Rosa.
