Five-Year Anniversary for PAMF in Dublin
March 2012 marks the five-year anniversary of the Palo Alto Medical Foundation caring for patients in Dublin, California.
“In 2007, we started with nine primary care physicians, including pediatricians, family medicine and internal medicine doctors. Now there are 24 primary care providers and four OB/Gyn providers,” said Dr. Jimmy Hu, pediatrician and physician leader at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s Dublin Center. “We’ve grown so much we recently added an additional floor to our medical center.”
In addition to primary care services, PAMF’s Dublin Center offers a breadth of specialty care services, including: Allergy, Audiology, Cardiology, Dermatology, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT), Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Podiatry, Physical Medicine and Surgery. The Pediatric specialty services include Dermatology, Endocrinology, Ophthalmology and Orthopedics.
The PAMF Dublin Center, located at 4050 Dublin Boulevard, features the latest advances in health care, including electronic health records, fully digital imaging services, same-day and next-day appointments with your primary care physician, and our unique team-based model of patient care. Additionally, it offers physical medicine, laboratory and radiology services. Free wireless Internet service is available for patient and visitor convenience.
The Dublin Center’s Community Health Resource Center is open to PAMF patients and the community at no cost.
“We plan to continue to grow to meet the health care needs of Dublin and the surrounding areas,” said Dr. Hu. “Our doctors and staff live and work here and enjoy being part of the community.”
Top Ranked in California
PAMF is rated four out of four stars by the California Office of the Patient Advocate (OPA) in a statewide assessment of all medical groups. Medical groups are ranked in two categories: meeting national standards of care, and patient ratings. The OPA, an independent state office in conjunction with the Department of Managed Health Care, was created to represent the interests of health plan members to get the care they deserve and to promote transparency and quality health care by publishing an annual Quality of Care Report Card. For this statewide assessment, 17 quality measures are evaluated across a range of important health conditions, including preventive care and wellness, for rating on national standards of care. PAMF’s Dublin and Fremont Centers are the only Alameda County providers that received four out of four stars.
