St. Anthony Medical Clinic strives to provide all of our neighbors in the Tenderloin with the highest quality health care possible. Sometimes this means providing acute care for patients in crisis, more often it means providing primary care, chronic disease management and preventive health coaching.
To build on these interventions, we have established partnerships with other social service and health care providers throughout the city to ensure that our patients have access to specialty and diagnostic services they might need. One such partnership, with SFGH’s Mobile Outreach Van, provides our patients with access to digital mammography services that are difficult to obtain without insurance and which could be life-saving. The upgraded “Mammo Mobile” will give thousands more low-income San Franciscans, including patients of St. Anthony Medical Clinic, access to services they could not otherwise secure.
