For nearly five decades, Gardner Health Services has provided exceptional health care to people of all ages, backgrounds, and life circumstances. In 1967, community members with help from the Stanford Medical School created a small clinic to meet the urgent health needs of local farm workers in the Alviso community. Since that time Gardner has expanded in response to community needs, now providing medical, dental, vision, counseling, and substance abuse services to more than 55,000 Santa Clara County residents annually.
At Gardner, we know that having a place to go for regular medical care is crucial to keeping people healthy and reducing the cost of healthcare for taxpayers. Your support ensures Gardner can continue to provide comprehensive, high quality medical and mental health care to our most vulnerable community members. Visit one of our community health care centers and get the help you need.
Gardner Health Services is a 330 Federally Qualified Health Center funded by the Bureau of Primary Health Care.
Gardner is dedicated to improving the health status of the communities we serve, especially the disenfranchised, disadvantaged and most vulnerable members. Our mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive health care, including prevention and education, early intervention, treatment and advocacy services which are affordable, respectful, culturally, linguistically and age appropriate. We want our community health centers to be family orientated.
