Touro University Partners with Solano County on Integrated Healthcare Clinics and Academic Community Healthcare
(Vallejo, CA – January 13, 2012) – A new partnership between Solano County and Touro University California (TUC) is expected to give Touro patients an opportunity to receive care at various County clinics and give thousands of Health and Social Services (H&SS) patients’ access to academic community healthcare.
This collaborative effort between public and private entities has created a significant partnership that will increase the access of Touro’s patients currently served at the University’s Glen Cove Clinic to integrated healthcare services provided by the County. Simultaneously, this collaboration will increase the access of H&SS patients to high-quality, cost-effective care by placing specialized Touro medical staff into county clinics. The joint venture will enhance community access to necessary services, while improving the health status of the communities served.
Touro University, which offers quality educational programs in the fields of health care and education, will provide patient care physicians who are board certified in their specialty. In addition, TUC medical students and TUC students in other healthcare fields will receive clinical training at the County’s clinics.
TUC physicians are expected to offer these services at various clinics beginning in February 2012. The University’s Glen Cove Clinic in Vallejo will merge its community healthcare services with the County’s clinic in Vallejo.
“Touro University is excited about this partnership and together with Solano County, looks toward the future of health care,” said Dr. Abraham Pera, Senior Associate Dean, College of Osteopathic Medicine at Touro University.
