San Ysidro Health (formerly San Ysidro Health Center) is a non-profit organization committed to providing high quality, compassionate, accessible and affordable health care services for the entire family.
The mission of San Ysidro Health is to improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve with access for all. Originally established along the border in 1969, The organization was founded by seven mothers in search of medical services for their children in 1969. Over fifty years later, San Ysidro Health now provides innovative care to more than 110,000 lives in our care through a vast and integrated network of 50 program sites across San Diego County including: medical clinics, dental clinics, behavioral health centers, HIV centers, WIC nutrition centers, mobile medical units, school-based health centers, chiropractic services, pediatric developmental clinic, teen clinic, senior health center and Program for All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). San Ysidro Health and its program sites are designed under the concept of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model of care, where the patient, not the support staff or provider, is the focus of all care and services.
Our organization’s new name and brand identity pay homage to its humble beginnings in the community where it was established 53 years ago. This community was named in honor of San Isidro Labrador, the patron saint of farmers, day laborers, and rural communities—the working poor. San Isidro spent his life as a hired hand and always shared what little he had, even his meals, with people in need. These values of compassion and care for others still ring true in the organization’s mission to improve the health and well-being of all in the communities we serve, especially the most vulnerable across San Diego County. With this rebranding the goal is to make the organization’s innovative healthcare services more identifiable, convenient and accessible for the thousands of families that are served. It is our honor and privilege to emulate these values daily.
