Community Health Alliance of Pasadena (ChapCare) has been awarded $12,000 by the Green Foundation, a nonprofit philanthropic organization that focuses on the arts, education and human services.
The generous grant award will support the purchase of a colposcope and a fetal monitor, which will enhance ChapCare’s high-quality, comprehensive Obstetrics & Gynecology (OB-GYN) program in the Pasadena area, ChapCare said in a statement.
The Green Foundation’s mission is to uncover new opportunities, encourage growth and ultimately effect positive change with institutions that best reflect their core focus areas and the communities they serve.
ChapCare offers OB-GYN services at its Del Mar health center in east Pasadena. OB-GYN services include: prenatal care for pregnant women, well-woman exams, and treatment of gynecological problems. The colposcope aids in detecting precancerous lesions of the cervix, and the fetal heart rate monitor helps in following high-risk pregnancies.
“Access to high-quality OB/GYN care is critical to ensure the health of the mother and her child,” said Margaret Martinez, ChapCare’s CEO. “We are grateful to the Green Foundation for funding this much-needed equipment, which will enhance the services offered to our patients.”
ChapCare’s Del Mar health center is located at 3160 E. Del Mar Blvd., Suite 200, in Pasadena. ChapCare provides low-or no-cost health services (Medi-Cal and Medicare) and accepts many Covered California and private insurance plans, and is open for OB-GYN services are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m.
