SOMO Community Care, is the largest  non- profit, diverse physician- led network of 2,800 health care providers serving over 1 million medicaid and medicare patients throughout New York City. Founded by Chairman,  Dr Ramon Tallaj in 2015, SOMOS has created a new model of quality, preventative health care on behalf of the most underserved communities of the United States, a model based on cultural competency, increased access, and the ability of community-based medicine to successfully address the social determinants of health.

Since March of 2020 SOMOS has served over 2 million meals,  has operated over 125 trilingual testing sites, tested over 1.5 million people  nationwide and administered over 2 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to seniors, municipal workers, healthcare workers, and the most vulnerable communities of color across nearly 200 vaccine sites in local landmarks like Yankee Stadium, the city’s most iconic subway stations, churches, schools, public parks, and public housing as a solution to a stark racial disparity resulting from mistrust, hesitancy, and barriers to access who too often fall through the cracks of traditional healthcare systems.
