Welcoming. Trustworthy. Innovative. Caring. These qualities have defined VCC since it first opened in the basement of a local animal shelter in 1972. VCC quickly became the health care safety net for the area’s poor and uninsured by giving them access to the high-quality health services that they needed and deserved. Today VCC is recognized as a key regional health provider with eight state-of-the-art clinics treating more than 65,000 patients each year. Our innovative model of community health provides low cost, high-quality health care to the residents of San Diego, Riverside, and Orange County communities.
