Mendota & Parlier Health Clinics

Mendota, CA
& Parlier, CA

Two new community health facilities for two medically underserved San Joaquin Valley communities

The Project

United Health Centers (UHC) is a State of California licensed Community Health Center and a recognized Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) whose 400 health care providers respond to over 200,000 medical, dental and mental health visits each year and provide services to some 48,000 low-income patients throughout the Central Valley. As part of UHC’s strategic plan to meet the health care needs of farm workers and other struggling residents, UHC initiated two worthy projects, the construction of new clinics and facilities for both their Parlier, CA and Mendota, CA locations. Central Valley NMTC provided financing used for construction at the Mendota site and to purchase equipment and furnishings at both the Parlier and Mendota projects.
