Order of Malta raises $170,000 toward clinic

October 22, 2015

The Order of Malta joined Oct. 13 to raise $170,000 toward expanding the hours of its Order of Malta Clinic of Northern California in Oakland. The Silver Chalice Awards Dinner held at the St. Francis Yacht Club honored Tony and Lucille Sanchez-Corea for their leadership and generosity in the establishment and maintenance of the facility.

The mission of the clinic is to “provide free medical care to the working poor and needy who do not have any form of medical insurance, without regard to race, creed, or religion,” according to the Order of Malta.

“The board for the Order of Malta Clinic, and all its supporters, were thrilled to honor the Sanchez-Corea family, as they truly embody the values this order was founded upon,” said John Christian, president of the clinic’s board of directors. “Their selflessness, service, and generosity enable us to care for those who need it most in our community.”

Since opening in 2008 the clinic located adjacent to the Diocese of Oakland’s Cathedral of Christ the Light has provided more than 19,000 primary care treatments to new and returning patients. The clinic accepts no fees for its services, nor does it receive public funding. Efforts now underway would have the clinic operating five days a week from half that.
