Community Impact & Outreach
At Doctors Medical Center, we believe in investing in the communities we serve. We provide support to activities, organizations, and causes that advance a public purpose, such as health, wellness, safety, cultural and general welfare. Through charitable contributions and sponsorships, we give thousands of dollars and volunteer hours to many worthwhile organizations. Our dedication to our team and community is stronger than ever.
Each year, we work to support our community through outreach programs that address various health concerns that are important to our area. Our community outreach program includes:
- Educational seminars
- Events on hospital campus
- Health screenings and education at local events
- Speakers Bureau on a wide range of health topics
Annual Blood Drives
We work year-round to save lives through donating blood. Due to the generosity of our employees, physicians, and volunteers, we are able to replenish blood banks across the country.
DMC Sponsorship ProgramDoctors Medical Center has awarded over thousands of dollars in scholarships to employees, contracted staff and dependents of employees for health-related fields.
Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive®
Every June, employees donate boxes of cereal to help collect much needed food for local families and promote the importance of eating a healthy breakfast, especially for children in the summer months.
Junior Volunteer Scholarship Program
The Service League of Doctors Medical Center has proudly awarded over hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships to local students, who volunteered their time at our hospital. Funds for the scholarship program come from profits earned in our volunteer-run hospital gift shop.
Safe Kids Stanislaus County
Led by Doctors Medical Center and Stanislaus County Police Activities League, Safe Kids provides dedicated staff and other resources to assist in achieving a common goal, keeping kids safe. Based on the needs of the community, this coalition implements evidence-based programs, such as car-seat checkups, safety workshops and sports clinics, that help parents and caregivers prevent childhood injuries.
Each year, we proudly support hundreds of local student-athletes in middle and high school by providing them with free screenings to ensure they are prepared to play in their upcoming seasons.
