What's happening at Santa Clara Family Health Plan

Giving back at Christmas

Our 2nd Annual Holiday Toy Giving Program was held at the SCFHP Blanca Alvarado Community Resource Center on December 14. Over 300 gifts were distributed to children of the health plan who enjoyed decorating their own stockings and ornaments.

We are thankful to all our SCFHP staff who coordinated this event, bought gifts, or volunteered their time.

Staff celebrate holidays with Ugly Sweater Competition

On December 21, before staff came together for a holiday luncheon from Maggiano’s at the San Ignacio facility, staff participated in an Ugly Sweater competition both in person or virtually.

More than 30 employees participated and the winners of a gift certificate are (in no particular order): Sue Won, Pamela Lowe, Carole Ruvalcaba, and Janet Smith.

The judges also announced honorable mentions because of the time and thought employees put into the competition. They are: Jenny Arellano Morales, Nicole Bell, Yolanda Rivera, Tim Wilson, and Dennise Ong.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

Volunteering at Second Harvest food bank

SCFHP Compliance team gave back to the community on January 24 by spending a few hours preparing food boxes at Second Harvest of Silicon Valley food bank.

Suggestion Box Highlights!

Thank you, everyone for your great suggestions!

As a reminder, the Employee Engagement Committee (EEC) receives a few different types of suggestions in our Suggestion Box. They include:

  • Requests for general company info or updates.

  • Benefits questions.

  • Suggestions for services or process improvements.

Each month, the EEC partners with HR to review all new suggestions and to share EEC recommendations when applicable. When process improvements are suggested, we share the suggestion directly with the appropriate management team. Please see this month’s highlighted suggestion below!

SUGGESTION - Turkey Trot and Santa Run:
“I was wondering if SCFHP could pay for the 5k, 10k runs that are going around in San Jose for example, the Santa Run on 12/11/2022. Turkey Trot is on the day of Thanksgiving I do this run to get out of cooking!”

Reply: In alignment with our mission, vision, and values, SCFHP provides sponsorships to over 50 organizations each year to support our health care safety net and strengthen community health. With these sponsorships, there are often events and activities, such as runs and races, that provide great ways to engage with our community and each other. We are discussing how to make even more of these opportunities available to staff. There are a number of events that celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion that would be wonderful to take part in! When opportunities are identified, we will share updates with staff on how to participate.

Stay tuned for more suggestion box updates at our All Staff meetings, and in future issues of the Inside the Plan!
