Sonoma Valley Community Health Center thrives

It is the biggest little secret in Sonoma Valley healthcare circles and it has been hiding in plain sight on West Napa Street since 1992.

And unless you’re one of the 7,000 Sonoma Valley residents who use it every year, there’s a good chance you don’t even know that the Sonoma Valley Community Health Center is a comprehensive, primary care clinic with a federal mandate to treat everyone who walks (or is carried) through the door, from cradle to grave.

"We are," said Marc Schwager, a member of the health center’s board of directors, “a family practice clinic on steroids.”

Added Kathleen Bianchi-Rossi, development director for the center, “Imagine the Hulk, dressed in a lab coat.”

If that image is a reach, try to picture 30,000 patient visits a year, translating into more than 80 visits a day.
