MayView Community Health Center (MayView) is a nonprofit primary care clinic devoted to providing healthcare to low-income families and individuals throughout northern Santa Clara County with clinics located in Palo Alto, Mt. View and Sunnyvale. MayView staff celebrate and share the rich cultural and language backgrounds of our patients and community. We practice a culture of health and speak the language of caring.
MayView was founded in 1972 to provide high quality primary health care to low-income people from all cultural and language backgrounds, regardless of ability to pay.
We emphasize early access to care and prevention, and we encourage patient self-responsibility by helping patients participate in decisions about their health, and by addressing relevant psychosocial and economic issues.
