WHO WE ARE
The Tzu Chi Medical Foundation offers quality, patient-centered care for low/no income individuals. We have three community clinics located in Alhambra, South El Monte, and Wilmington, California. We provide an array of services including medical care, dental care, vision care, acupuncture, and the use of East-West medicine techniques and principles as appropriate. Across our fleet of mobile clinics, too, we provide medical, dental, and vision care, and cancer screening services, too. Finally, our Healthy Community programs provide education, cancer awareness and detection methods, patient support groups, and healthy living insight that address the person beyond the patient.
Many in our network of healthcare professionals are also members of the Tzu Chi International Medical Association, which hosts outreach events around the world that provide free and quality medical, dental, and vision care, plus acupuncture, chiropractic, health education, and hair cutting services to communities in need. Fully staffed and operated by volunteers, it is a blessing to provide relief to those with limited or no access to quality care.
Ever since the new coronavirus emerged onto the scene, the Tzu Chi Medical Foundation and Tzu Chi USA have been sourcing and providing personal protective equipment and supplies to our colleagues in healthcare at home and around the world. We have already been able to purchase and procure 3.5 million surgical masks, nearly 464.3K N95 respirators, 100K goggles, 65.4K gloves, 30K coveralls, and 6K face shields – much of which has already been distributed across the nation.
