Our main purpose as a Federally Qualified Health Center is to enhance the provision of primary care services in underserved urban and rural communities. Back in 1973, concerned citizens from Kerman, San Joaquin, and surrounding communities worked together to form an organization that could bring quality healthcare to this underserved region. The dream was realized when our first primary care center opened in the town of San Joaquin to meet the medical needs of the residents of the rural western Fresno County area.
Valley Health Team has grown steadily to meet the mounting healthcare needs of the region. Our leadership is governed by an active and involved board of directors, some of whom are patients of Valley Health Team. Services are provided by a care team of qualified professionals working in multi-disciplinary teams. Board certified physicians, certified physician assistants, psychologists, nurse practitioners, licensed clinical social workers and health educators, dentists, optometrists, and support staff work with leadership to provide culturally relevant, outcome-based care.
Valley Health Team is a Joint Commission accredited, private, non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center serving patients throughout the central California valley with an operating budget in excess of $15 million.
