Hospital Council, participating hospitals, the shelter provider,
elected officials, and community leaders celebrated the opening
of the first Medical Respite Center (MRC) in Monterey County on
May 24, 2016. The MRC is a public/private partnership between
Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, Natividad Medical
Center, Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System, Community
Homeless Solutions, and Hospital Council.
Community Homeless Solutions will operate the program in a three
bedroom home in Seaside, housing up to 6 clients at a time. A
social worker and case manager will work with the clients by
connecting them to needed medical and social services in hopes to
achieve better health outcomes and start their journey toward
housing stability and self-sufficiency.
The Open House and Ribbon Cutting event included hospital leaders
from the three hospitals, Community Homeless Solutions and its
board of directors, and Monterey County Board of Supervisors
Chair Jane Parker.
The MRC was a three year project which included developing a
needs assessment and financial feasibility study, identifying a
service provider and program location, defining the scope of the
program, and creating MOUs between the participating entities.
For 2020-2021, Community Homeless Solutions continues as the
service provider with Montage Health and
Natividad participating in the program.
