The people in California’s central valley are as diverse as the crops we grow and the food we produce for the nation. Golden Valley Health Centers cares for people from all walks of life. As a Federally Qualified community-based healthcare organization—an FQHC—we follow regulations pertaining to the type and quality of health services provided to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
GVHC health centers serve all races, ages, and walks of life. Our staff and providers are as diverse as the patients we serve—many are bilingual and residents of the community.
We offer a sliding fee scale for the uninsured and lower income patients to enable patients of all income levels to access services.
Golden Valley Health Centers is funded by federal monies, grants specifically for care of low income and homeless patients, reimbursement for care and donations. With an operating budget of over $80 million, we have 28 health centers in Merced and Stanislaus Counties, including four school-based health centers, two freestanding women’s health centers, eight dental operatories, and two homeless health care programs.
