Sanger and Fowler Health Clinics

Sanger, CA
& Fowler, CA

New community health facilities for two health care professional underserved communities

The Project

United Health Centers (UHC) delivers approximately 200,000 medical, dental, and other service encounters per year and is staffed by a comprehensive team of over 400 health professionals consisting of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, lab and x-ray technicians, dentists, dental hygienists, nutritionists, and certified ancillary personnel, most of whom are bilingual. The ethnic composition of the patients served by the centers is 91% Hispanic, 1% Black, 7% White, 1% other. UHCs accepts various modes of payment including Medi-Cal, Medicare, and private insurance. Services are provided to patients without insurance on a sliding-fee-scale according to the patient’s ability to pay. The Sanger and Fowler clinics are a part of UHC’S ongoing efforts to meet the demonstrated need for health care services throughout the Central Valley. NMTC financing was used for construction, equipment, furnishings and supplies.
