Expanded Child Care Referral and Child Development Service Designed to Serve Employees of Peninsula Hospital and Medical Center.
The expansion of an established child care referral and child development service to meet the needs of employees of the Peninsula Hospital and Medical Center, San Mateo County, California, is described in this report. The possibility of working with an existing resource and referral agency to develop and/or provide special services for hospital employees was seen as the quickest and easiest way for the hospital to provide child care assistance to employees. The report describes the Child Care Coordinating Council (4-C) of San Mateo County and the process by which a contract was made with that organization to provide services to hospital employees. Benefits of the program to employees and employers are listed and the specific aspects of the contract are discussed. In addition, the processes of referral, follow-up, screening, and other services are described. Related materials, including an information handout and a flow chart of the child care referral process are appended. (Author/RH)
