Community Partnership Clinics
Through sustained collaborative agreements between our community-based partner clinics, our division, and Stanford Health Care our faculty serve as a community-academic bridge.
Ravenswood Family Health Network
Ravenswood Family Health Network is a federally qualified health center headquartered in East Palo Alto. The network represents the merger of the Ravenswood Clinic (in San Mateo County) and Mayview Clinics (in northern Santa Clara County), both of which have longstanding partnerships with our primary care division, housing several of our clinical faculty. The mission of Ravenswood is to improve the health of the community by providing culturally sensitive, integrated primary and preventative health care to all, regardless of ability to pay or immigration status, and collaborating with community partners to address the social determinants of health.
Roots Community Health Center
Founded in Oakland, California, the mission of Roots Community Health Center is to uplift those impacted by systemic inequities and poverty. They accomplish this through medical and behavioral health care, health navigation, workforce enterprises, housing, outreach, and advocacy. The Roots-Stanford PCPH partnership began in 2019 and has grown to include multiple collaborations, including with Stanford’s Department of Psychiatry to pilot expansion of integrated behavioral health.
PHC Clinic at the Opportunity Center
Peninsula Healthcare Connection is a medical clinic co-located with the Opportunity Center which provides social services combatting homelessness. Located across the street from Stanford campus, in central Palo Alto, PHC was founded in 2005 and is the only medical facility providing free, direct healthcare services to homeless and low-income residents of North Santa Clara County. Stanford faculty Dr. Donald Barr and Lars Osterberg were among its founders; since 2018 our division has proudly partnered with PHC to ensure ongoing staffing of primary care, and expansion of substance use disorder care.
