Since 2013, Marta Banh, OD has provided optometry services for San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC). The County's need for optometry services is increasing due to the aging of its patient population. SMMC will continue to meet this growing need through contracts with Dr. Banh and other optometrists.

County Administrative Memorandum B-1 provides that contracts for physicians are exempt from the Request for Proposals process.

The agreement and resolution have been reviewed and approved by the County Counsel as to form.
