What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Community Health Centers, like Petaluma Health Center, were born from the War on Poverty. Community health centers have empowered entire communities by reducing health disparities through the provision of high quality health services and the creation of training and employment opportunities for underserved communities.

PHC is committed to eliminating health disparities and to improving the health status of the communities we serve. PHC was founded in 1999 by concerned citizens that believed everyone should have access to high-quality, patient-centered, prevention-focused health care services. PHC is a non-profit health center that serves approximately 35,000 patients and provides over 175,000 visits annually, committed to providing access to comprehensive primary health care and disease prevention services. PHC provides a robust array of services to ensure that everyone in Sonoma County has the opportunity to reach their highest potential and live healthy, fulfilling lives.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Petaluma Health Center, Inc. is a nationally-recognized, award-winning health care organization committed to ensuring that all people in Sonoma County have access to high-quality, patient-centered health care.

Since 2014, Petaluma Health Center has opened 5 additional health care delivery sites and has become one of the largest non-profit organizations in Sonoma County, employing almost 400 individuals who work at one of our seven clinic sites. Petaluma Health Center's team of health care professionals provides over 175,000 health care visits to approximately 35,000 people.

Our top three strategic goals are:
1) To expand access to prevention-focused medical health care to an additional 5,000 people by the end of 2019
2) To expand access to mental health and substance abuse services to an additional 1,500 people, and particularly to victims of the recent wildfires, by the end of 2019.
3) To utilize a mobile medical/dental van to expand access to prevention-focused medical, dental mental health and substance abuse services to an additional 8 public schools by the end of 2019.

1) Launch Nurse Practitioner and Family Medicine Residency Programs - We are launching Family Nurse Practitioner and Family Medicine Physician Residency Programs to train 2 physicians and 8 nurse practitioners annually so we can grow our own medical providers to expand access to health care.
2) Integrate Behavioral, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services with Primary Medical Care Services - We are integrating Behavioral, Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services with our Medi-Cal practice. Every patient who comes in for a medical visit will be screened for behavioral, mental or substance abuse issues, and when appropriate will see a behavioral, mental or substance abuse provider during their medical visit.
3) 100% Schools-Outreach Campaign - Three years ago, we entered into a partnership with local schools districts to ensure all uninsured children were enrolled in publically-subsidized health insurance programs. Currently, approximately 98% of students in the schools we work with have health insurance. We recently launched an initiative to strengthen our focus on community fundraising, and to use some of those funds to purchase a mobile health clinic van, which will allow us to provide prevention-focused medical, dental and mental and behavioral health services at our local public schools, which will facilitate access to care for children of working families.

The Petaluma Health Center has grown to almost 400 employees, serving 7 clinic sites across Sonoma County. Our team of health care professionals, includes physicians, nurse practitioners dentists, psychologists, physician assistants, clinical nurse midwives, optometrists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, licensed clinical social workers, nurses, medical assistants, and many others. In 2017 the Petaluma Health Center served approximately 35,000 patients through 175,000 patient visits. We provided 29,320 dental visits, cared for 10,000 children and teens, delivered almost 400 babies, and provided care to almost 700 people who were homeless. Our new Nurse Practitioner and Physician Residency programs will allow us to continue to train and grow our clinical staff, which will allow us to meet the needs of more patients and reach our goals.

Petaluma Health Center, Inc. a nationally-recognized, award-winning health care organization committed to ensuring that all people in Sonoma County have access to high-quality, patient-centered health care. Among our recognitions, we have earned The Joint Commission Accreditation, the gold standard for patient safety, for Ambulatory and also for Behavioral Health Care. The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) awarded us the 2017 Community Health Davies Award for our proven ability to use our Electronic Health Record data to improve patient health outcomes. We are one of 12 health centers in California that received the U.S. Health and Human Services' Health Resources and Services Administration's 2017 National Quality Leader Award. We were one of 18 health systems in the nation to receive the Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) 2015 Million Hearts Hypertension Control Champions for our efforts to reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes in our patient population. Further, for the last 7 consecutive years, we have been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in the North Bay by the North Bay Business Journal.

Since 2014, Petaluma Health Center has opened 5 additional health care delivery sites and has become one of the largest non-profit organizations in Sonoma County, employing almost 400 individuals who work at our seven clinic sites. Petaluma Health Center's team of health care professionals currently provides over 175,000 health care visits to approximately 35,000 people each year. By the end of 2019, we project we will be providing approximately 200,000 health care visits to an estimated 40,000 people. In collaboration with our local public schools, we will be expanding access to medical, dental and behavioral health services by utilizing a mobile health clinic van to better serve the needs to public school students.
