We are pioneers, healers,
advocates and neighbors.
We are pioneers. Since 1972, we have been a visionary
organization with a progressive model of care that emphasizes
education, prevention, and integrated services and uses
our multilingual/multicultural expertise to provide accessible
health care to our diverse communities.
We are healers. We put people first, providing high-quality patient-focused
health care that is evidence-based, reflects
best practices, and respects the cultures of the patients
we serve. We educate patients and family members and
involve them in their own health care. We care for
all people who come to us, whatever their means, with
compassion and respect.
We are advocates. We are sought
out as the community voice for Latino, Hmong, adolescent,
and health care
issues. We understand public health issues, partner
with other organizations to address community needs,
for public policy that helps people gain access to
affordable health care and other needed services.
are neighbors. We provide comprehensive healthcare
services where our multilingual/multicultural expertise
is most needed-in urban neighborhoods, schools,
housing campuses, and homeless shelters. We serve
as a community cornerstone in providing services,
local residents, and contributing to community vitality.
