Patrick Coleman Pulsepoint Save Lives Sonoma

NCMA cardiologist, Patrick Coleman, MD, speaks at the October 2018 launch event for PulsePoint, a joint initiative with Save Lives Sonoma, emergency medical service & fire agencies throughout Sonoma County.

As long-time members of the North Bay community, Northern California Medical Associates is invested in the welfare of Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties and continues to seek opportunities that contribute to the overall health and well-being of its people. Through community collaboration, NCMA is proud to share a unique partnership with the Northern California Center for Well-Being in implementing cardiac rehabilitation through its HeartWorks program.

NCMA is also a proud supporter of local and national non-profit organizations and their events, such as

  • the American Heart Association Heart Walk and Go Red for Women;
  • the Northern California Center for Well-Being’s annual Celebration of Dreams event honoring leaders in health and wellness; and
  • the Sutter Breast Care Center.

In addition, NCMA’s comprehensive network of providers, facilities and services work together to ensure the highest level of heart care to our patients throughout the North Bay. NCMA has an established leadership role in the community via years of life-saving expertise. We host several physician and physical therapist continuing education meetings and seminars. The cardiology staff’s community involvement does not end there — of the many community partnerships that NCMA has established, our Cardiovascular Services staff is proud to be partnered with the American Heart Association in conducting cholesterol screenings throughout Sonoma County and beyond.


Here are some recent community event projects we’re proud to have been a part of:
