Sonoma Valley Community Health Center temporary closure during facility transition

Sonoma Valley Community Health Center temporary closure during facility transition

Move begins, training scheduled during temporary closure; patients alerted and emergency plans in place

The Sonoma Valley Community Health Center (SVCHC) is pleased to announce its plans to move services to the newly expanded facility with over 18,000 square feet of space to better serve patients and the community. On Wednesday, July 16, the SVCHC will begin the process to transition the clinic to its new home at 19270 Sonoma Highway, located directly across from Maxwell Village and the Breakaway Café.

The new clinic facility was made possible in part by funding granted through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), as well as generous donations to the ‘Building the Future’ capital campaign. With Phase I complete, the SVCHC staff continues to seek support for the $5 million capital campaign. A complete list of donors can be found on the SVCHC website, www.svchc.org.

Over the past several months, the SVCHC Outreach Staff has worked diligently to communicate directly to the nearly 7,000 patients to alert them to the temporary closure of the facility and to develop alternative plans for care during that timeframe.

What: Temporary clinic closure to allow for the move to the new facility and professional development for clinic staff

When:

  • Wednesday, July 16 – Behavioral Health and the Annex will be closed – the primary clinic will remain open.
  • Thursday, July 17 – Entire clinic will shut down.
  • Tuesday, July 22 – New site location open to patients.

Where: New facility is located at 19270 Sonoma Highway, Sonoma, CA 95476
