A former UCSF nurse pioneers the Central Coast’s only home care provider for sick kids.
Monterey County Weekly

Longtime nurse Margy Mayfield has been committed to providing home care for terminally or chronically ill children since opening Coastal Kids Home Care in 2007. It’s the only agency providing palliative care and hospice services to low-income, dying kids in the tri-county (Santa Cruz, San Benito and Monterey) area, and a portion of Santa Clara County up to about Mountain View. Commitment goes miles beyond nine-to-five and 40 hours for Mayfield: She worked without pay and took out a second mortgage on her home just to keep the Salinas agency’s doors open through its first three summers.
