Building Healthier and Happier Communities Together
A Message To Our Valued Community Families
April 2016

Dear valued community friends and families,

Operation Samahan has been on the front lines keeping our community families healthy, whole and intact since 1973. We have been working hard to help address our community’s high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, obesity, asthma, premature pregnancy deaths and many other chronic diseases in an effort to help improve the quality and length of life for community families who have loved ones fighting these and other chronic diseases.

As the Chief Executive Officer of Operation Samahan, I want our valued community families to know the single most important thing we can do to keep our loved ones healthy, whole and alive is to get them and keep them under the care of a primary care clinician. If you and/or your family members:

  • Have high blood pressure and have not been seen by your primary care clinician in the last 30 days
  • Have diabetes and have not been seen by your primary care clinician in the last 30 days
  • Are obese and have not been seen by your primary care clinician in the last 30 days
  • Have asthma and have not been seen by your primary care clinician in the last 30 days
  • Are expecting a child and have not yet been seen by a primary care clinician
  • Have children who have not had their well child checks
  • Have children who have not had all of their immunizations
  • Suffer from depression and have not been seen by your primary care clinician in the last 30 days
  • Are veterans and are looking for a medical provider who can provide core primary care services, behavioral health and substance abuse services all under one roof
  • Have elders/seniors who have not had their annual physical exam
  • Have not had your annual pap smear and/or mammography and/or;
  • Left our Medical Group

Then we, the Board of Directors and Administration, encourage you to pick up the phone and call us today at (844) 200-2426 to let our gifted and dedicated professionals partner with you to help keep your family and you healthy. Operation Samahan has been and remains committed to working with you to help keep you and your family healthy: because keeping you healthy is what we do.

Warmest regards,

Carl I. Walters II.
Chief Executive Officer

History

“Samahan” is a Filipino word which means working together. It was founded in 1973 by a group of doctors and other health professionals as well as community leaders to assist ailing Filipino elders access healthcare. A small barbershop in downtown San Diego became Operation Samahan’s hub of health screening as well as informal health education gatherings. As the number grew and more Filipinos and other underserved ethnic groups accessed its services, Operation Samahan was officially incorporated in 1973 into a 501©3, nonprofit freestanding private community clinic.

More than thirty years later, what started as a community project initiated by Filipino community volunteers turned into a multi-service family health and multi-service center serving low-income families and individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds—Latinos, Filipino, Laotians, Asian and Pacific Islanders, African-American, Caucasians and refugees from the Middle East and other countries.
