Five Decades of Community Care
When VCC first opened in 1972, we set out to provide quality health care to anyone who walked through our doors.
Today, nearly 50 years later, we’ve helped redefine the community clinic model by pioneering innovative models of primary care delivery.
With nine state-of-the-art clinics treating more than 69,000 patients every year, VCC is a key health provider for the Southern California region.
More than that, however, we’re a place where all members of our community can feel welcome, safe, and empowered to choose health.
A community where every person chooses health.
To advance community health and hope by providing access to premier health services and education for those who need it most.
Redefining the Community Clinic
At VCC, we’re helping to redefine what it means to be a community clinic.
Community health centers (CHCs) empower communities that have been disproportionally impacted by social determinants of health. We provide healthcare in communities where there are few or no options for care or where systemic barriers to care have been created.
But beyond providing care to anyone who walks through our doors, we are pioneering some of the most innovative models of primary care delivery. As an integral part of the communities we serve, we’re able to respond quickly and efficiently to immediate and emerging public health issues like the COVID-19 pandemic.
