March 2021: District Partners with City of Camarillo for Transportation Services
The Camarillo Health Care District is honored to partner with the City of Camarillo, demonstrating the City’s commitment to supporting seniors in the community by financially supporting Care-A-Van Transportation Services, from March 2020 to July 2021. In February, 2021, the City Council approved the provision of $57,000 of general CARES Act funding to the Camarillo Health Care District to provide non-emergency transportation rides at no charge. “This is an essential partnership at exactly the right time and provides much-needed relief,” shared Kara Ralston, Camarillo Health Care District’s CEO. “We appreciate the Council’s vision during this pandemic and their commitment to serving every sector of the community.
“We’re very honored to be part of the City’s plan in meeting the needs of the community, and we look forward to helping people get to the health services they need, “ stated Christopher Loh, MD, Board President of the Camarillo Health Care District. The City’s contribution to the District will help provide door-through-door transportation to District residents for non-emergency medical appointments, activities of daily living, preventive health and other health maintenance appointments, including to and from District programs, throughout Ventura County.
