For forty years, Salud Para La Gente (Salud) has made sure our community has had a doctor when it needed one. Salud was founded in 1978. We began as a single free clinic offering healthcare primarily to farmworkers living and working on California’s Central Coast. Since that time, Salud has become a federally qualified health center (FQHC), and grown to five clinics and six school-based health centers providing affordable, high-quality healthcare to nearly 27,000 patients.
We serve a unique, vibrant community including farmworkers and their families. Our origins are rooted in serving local farmworkers and their families. Our region produces the healthy food that feeds America yet our community suffers disproportionally from poor health outcomes like inadequate nutrition, obesity, and diabetes.
At Salud, our team is dedicated to continually improving the quality of the care we provide and increasing the services we offer our patients. We’re proud of how our latest accomplishments allow us to better serve our community.
