The health center is committed to enhancing the quality of life by providing a culturally competent, holistic, and patient-centered continuum of care.

Our center plays a major role as part of the “safety net” in the Sacramento area, where recent changes to Medi-Cal benefits, and the managed care environment have resulted in significant portions of the population left with little or no access to mainstream health care. We are proud of the important characteristics that distinguish us from mainstream health care providers and health systems. We are rooted in and responsive to our local community, we... share a common sense of mission and purpose, and we have proved resilient in the face of challenges and change. Beyond providing health care, our goal is to contribute to the development and empowerment of all members of the Sacramento community.
