In 1982, a group of community-based, non-profit health clinics – recognizing their shared values and concerns – came together to form the San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium (SFCCC). The creation of SFCCC allowed these clinics to pool their collective resources to address their needs and interests, and those of their patients, to local, state and national policy makers.
SFCCC works to lead and support the partnership in four core areas, each with distinct programs: access to care, workforce development, maximization of valuable resources and health policy. While SFCCC partner health clinics focus on patient care and preserving the well-being of the communities they serve, SFCCC promotes the health of our clinics - keeping them poised to adapt to a changing healthcare environment - so that their long-standing tradition of community care is preserved.
At Lyon-Martin, we are fortunate to have a long, rich history of dedicated, hardworking advocates and health providers who have for over thirty years shaped this award-winning community health center that so many individuals rely on to this day. We started as a primary care clinic for lesbians and have expanded over the years to also serve low-income heterosexual women, bisexual women, and transgender individuals. We are blessed with the enduring legacy of our namesakes’ Phyllis and Del’s love and devotion to each other and our communities.

The San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium (SFCCC) is excited that October 1, 2013, the first day of enrollment in expanded Medi-Cal and Covered California Health Exchange, is finally here! The programs begin January 1, 2014, but if you enroll between today and December 15, 2013, you can get coverage starting on January 1.SFCCC staff and our partner clinics are being trained as Certified Application Assisters. Since a large number of the patients who go to a SFCCC partner clinic are likely to be eligible for expanded Medi-Cal, SFCCC staff has been working with both the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the San Francisco Department of Human Services to develop the best procedures for processing Medi-Cal applications.
