Gardner Health Services is a safety net that offers high-quality, comprehensive healthcare to individuals in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, regardless of their ability to pay.

Gardner Health Services is an affiliation of two 501(C)(3) organizations: Gardner Family Health Network, Inc. and Gardner Family Care Corporation.

What does Gardner do?

Gardner provides high-quality and culturally competent comprehensive healthcare, including medical, dental, vision, counseling, and substance abuse services to 60,000 individuals every year — services that, without Gardner, would be out of reach.

Gardner is a critical part of Silicon Valley's social safety net, serving communities in Santa Clara and South San Mateo counties, regardless of ability to pay.

Gardner believes that quality of service is not commensurate with a patient's income level and that all people deserve compassionate practitioners, excellent facilities, and world-class care.

Gardner serves people whose labor supports the multibillion dollar companies of Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley safety net

In Silicon Valley, one of the country's wealthiest regions, more than 350,000 individuals struggle daily to meet basic needs — including healthcare — for themselves and their families.

60,000 of these individuals visit Gardner facilities to receive essential medical, dental, vision, counseling, and substance abuse services that, without Gardner, would be out of reach.

15% of Santa Clara residents don't qualify for health insurance at all.

Mission Statement

From the CEO and Board Chair

Dear Friends,

A heart-felt thanks to you and the many people who make our work possible. At Gardner Health Services, we know that having a place to go for regular health care is crucial to keeping people healthy and reducing the cost of healthcare for taxpayers. Your support ensures that Gardner continues to provide comprehensive, high quality medical, dental, vision, and counseling services to the most vulnerable members of our community.

What started as an exercise in social justice in the 1960's has evolved into one of the largest primary care systems in Santa Clara County. Gardner works to improve the health status of those we serve, especially the disenfranchised, disadvantaged and most vulnerable members of our community. Our services are affordable and respectful to our clients, and the care that they receive is delivered in culturally sensitive manner. Last year, Gardner provided services to nearly 60,000 individuals.

We live in the wealthiest region in America, yet many residents don't have access to basic health care. Our patients are the landscapers, fast food workers, house cleaners, and auto mechanics who keep Silicon Valley thriving. Many are individuals and families who are homeless, undocumented, or simply not covered by government-sponsored programs.

That is why Gardner's strategic focus continues to be increasing access to health care in Silicon Valley. We believe that everyone deserves access to basic health care, the opportunity for improved health outcomes, and to allow their dreams to come true.

Gardner continues to focus on opening health clinics in areas where the need is great. Two years ago, we opened the Gardner Packard Children's Health Center in southern San Mateo County. By partnering with Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, we were able to bring leading-edge pediatric health care to some of the Bay Area's lowest income and most vulnerable children.

This year, we are renewing our partnership with Santa Clara County at the new Downtown Health Center in San Jose to further expand health care access in the core of our region's largest city.

We also continue to be actively engaged in our community's push to achieve universal health coverage; essentially to change the health care delivery model to more of a universal collaboration with the Santa Clara Valley County Health and Hospital System, as well as other community partners. In 2015, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a Health Coverage Initiative pilot program, which will provide access to health coverage for 5,000 adult residents in its first year, regardless of income or documentation status. Gardner is very pleased to be a key health care provider in this historic effort.

Gardner's work speaks to the strength of our network and the strong partnerships we have built within the community. Our collective dedication and willingness to collaborate makes us ever hopeful that we will continue to provide and expand health care access to everyone in our community. Thank you for your ongoing partnership and support. We look forward to working together in the years ahead.

Regards –

Reymundo C. Espinoza
