represents 10 community-based primary care clinics with 18 clinic sites
that are strategically located in the City. SFCCC clinics serve four of
the special health disparities communities (Mission, Tenderloin, South
of Market, and Bayview) identified by the SF Health Commission as
especially in need of increased health care access. Our partner clinics
keep people well and reduce healthcare costs. The care received at SFCCC
clinics prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and reduce inappropriate
hospital emergency room (ER) visits.
SFCCC clinics provide 359,000 medical and dental visits per year to 91,000 low-income uninsured or underinsured San Franciscans, more than 10% of the City’s population. Our high quality clinical care is provided across the network and our sensitivity to race, culture, gender or sexual identity is core to our clinical practice. SFCCC partner clinics offer service in over 20 languages and in multiple dialects. SFCCC partner clinics employ over 500 health care professionals. SFCCC partner clinics bring over $72 million in Federal, State and philanthropic dollars into the City to support services for our client populations. Less than 3% of our funding comes from the City.
