SIHC began as a satellite operation of the Indian Health Council in Pauma Valley. In the beginning, we operated out of trailers on the Sycuan reservation, offering outreach and referral services to southern San Diego tribes. In November, 1982, we incorporated as a nonprofit, public benefit corporation, and moved to the Barona reservation shortly thereafter.
SIHC has undergone tremendous growth over the years. Today, we serve a seven-member tribal consortium which includes Barona, Campo, Ewiiaapaayp, Jamul, La Posta, Manzanita, and Viejas. We are an accredited and Federally-Qualified Health Center operating out of a modern facility set on 10 acres of pristine countryside.
