The partnership between Assistance League of Laguna Beach and the Community Clinic positively impacts the health of Laguna Beach residents, says a chapter statement.
The chapter’s long established early intervention program for developmentally delayed infants led the group to establish another health related project. The group decided to update the clinic’s ultrasound equipment to promote healthy mothers and infants, Catherine Hall, the chapter’s philanthropic programs chair, said in a statement.
The league also contributed toward an electronic medical records system, mandated by the federal government. Once in place, the clinic received $200,000 in additional state funding. “Caring for the health of our community is a big job. We couldn’t do it without partners like the Assistance League,” said Dr. Jorge Rubal, clinic medical director.
