Our Mission Statement
We serve our rural communities with complete quality care and friendly customer service, providing exceptional healthcare for all.
A Message from our CEO
Mountain Valleys Health Centers, Inc., (MVHC) is a not-for-profit community health center organization offering quality health and dental care to rural communities in northeastern California for over 30 years. It is our goal to provide top-of-the-line comprehensive health care to our patients. We strive to recruit the best medical providers, dentists, and behavioral health specialists available and to provide them with quality staff. We believe the personal relationship between a patient and doctor is the key to quality health and dental care. It is our goal to treat all patients with the care and respect we would expect for our own families.
All seven of MVHC’s sites are designated as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC). As an FQHC, our goal is to promote wellness and not only treat sick people. We accomplish this through community outreach and health educators. FQHCs are recognized across the country as the safety net for health care. MVHC is also a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233 (g)-(n).
What is a not-for-profit? The very simple definition is that the company owners are not compensated. So who are the owners? They are a group of very dedicated volunteers who donate their time to serve on the board of directors. The MVHC board meets monthly to review operations and approve policy. Each community served by MVHC is represented by members on the board; essentially, the community owns the health centers. The board hires the CEO to oversee operations and provide day-to-day management. That board is my boss.
It is my honor to serve our rural communities in beautiful northeastern California.
