Our Mission, Vision & Values


To ensure that San Mateo County’s underserved residents have access to high-quality care services and supports so they can live the healthiest lives possible.


We believe that healthy is for everyone and work to continually advocate for our members health, especially those disproportionally impacted by health inequities, and meet the highest quality of care standards.  


HPSM has been keeping San Mateo County HEALTHY for over 35 years:

Health care that puts members at the center of everything we do.

Equitable access to quality services and supports for all members.

Advocacy for members disproportionately impacted by health inequities.

Local health care based in San Mateo county provided in partnership with community resources.

Transparency and accountability achieved through local governance.

Honesty is the core of our service to members, providers, business partners and the community.

You - because HEALTHY is for everyone!

Our Strategic Framework

HPSM's 2019-2021 Strategic Framework serves as a roadmap that sets a clear direction for our organization over the next three years. It builds on the progress we’ve made since starting our 2016-2018 plan by continuing to focus on three key priorities:

  • Ensuring access to high quality care and services
  • Maintaining strong internal operations 
  • Sustaining financial stability

Our strategic framework incorporates input from staff, Commissioners, advisory committee members, providers and other key partners.
