Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We believe that health care is a basic human right, and that culturally and linguistically appropriate care is essential for all. Not only do we provide care to all who come to us, regardless of income, insurance, immigration status, housing status, or language spoken, but we are unique among Federally-Qualified Health Centers in that we place a tremendous emphasis on supporting the Spanish-speaking and Latino communities, among others, by hiring multi-lingual providers and applying traditional Latin American and Indigenous cultural and healing practices where applicable.

Patient Profile

La Clínica's many services include: medical, dental, optical, women's health, prenatal care, preventive medicine, health and nutrition education, adolescent services, mental health services, behavioral health services, case management, referral services, pharmacy, radiology, and laboratory services. The majority of people (>95%) La Clínica serves earn below 200% of the poverty level. Most of our patients (64%) are Latino, 8% come from Asian and Arabic heritages, 11% are African American or come from such East African countries as Ethiopia and Eritrea, and 10% are of European heritage. More than 75% of our patients need to be served in their native languages. Ninety-five percent (95%) do not have private health insurance. In recent years, La Clínica has been serving more and more people without other means for health care. Last year alone, we served nearly 87,000 individuals. Almost half (43%) of these patients were children and adolescents; and the numbers continue to rise. We expect to see more and more people as families struggle to pay the increasing costs of health coverage.

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our Vision is for La Clínica to be a premier community health center, rooted in the concepts of wellness, prevention and patient-centered care, in a world where health care is viewed as a basic human right.

As outlined in our 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, we seek to:<br/><br/>- Achieve optimal health outcomes for all La Clínica members and the broader community.<br/>- Provide every member with a La Clínica experience that meets or exceeds their expectations.<br/>- Attract and retain capable and culturally-agile staff who are committed to excellence.<br/>- Strengthen La Clínica's long-term financial sustainability to achieve its mission in a dynamic<br/>health care environment.<br/>- Advocate for a more equitable health care system to ensure the well-being and success of<br/>La Clínica and the communities we serve. <br/><br/>http://www.laclinica.org/forms/laclinica-strategic-plan_2015-2020.pdf

With 1,200 staff members and 35 locations across three counties (Alameda, Contra Costa, and Solano), we are a well-respected force in the community health center realm in California. We achieve success through our internal efforts as well as our external advocacy, as well as our engagement with the Community Health Center Network, Essential Access Health, and other networks and organizations.
