to eliminate any barriers for our neighbors in getting a COVID-19 test,” said
Dan Woods, chief executive officer of El Camino Health. “Funding from the El
Camino Healthcare District has enabled us provide community-wide testing at our
Mountain View hospital and partner with local organizations to bring testing
sites closer to where people live and work. We continue to look for new
opportunities to support the health of our community and the County’s efforts.”

kudos,” said Simitian. “Not only have they expanded their testing hours at El
Camino Hospital, they’re now providing pop-up testing to members of the broader
community, which benefits us all.”
