With the imminent closure of the RotaCare Clinic Mountain View, the El Camino Healthcare District voted to grant MayView Community Health Center, left, $2.4 million.

Effective this month, El Camino Hospital will begin referring uninsured and underinsured patients to MayView Community Health Center, replacing the volunteer-driven RotaCare Clinic Mountain View that will likely close this summer.

The El Camino Healthcare District Board of Directors voted Jan. 19 to grant MayView $2.4 million over three-and-a-half years. The district will continue to fund RotaCare through June, and possibly longer, to support patients’ transition. Board member Dennis Chiu abstained from the vote, voicing a wish to fund RotaCare through December.
