Who We Are
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.
We committed to the full inclusion of immigrants – regardless of their status – people of all races, ethnicities, and religions, in our community. We treasure their diverse perspectives and rich experiences they bring to our communities. Families from all over the world came to our country to start anew and to have the opportunity to create a better life for themselves and future generations.

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.

Kindness is more than a virtue. It is a source of strength. If we teach our children to be kind and remind each other of the same, we can live from a place of strength, not fear. I have seen this strength manifest every day in the words and actions of people all across our great nation. It is what gives me hope that we can heal during challenging times.
We will only be successful in addressing addiction – and other illnesses – when we recognize the humanity within each of us. People are more than their disease. All of us are more than our worst mistakes. We must ensure our nation always reflects a fundamental value: every life matters.
Healing happens when we are able to truly talk to and connect with each other. That means listening and understanding. It means assuming good, not the worst. It means pausing before we judge. Building a more connected America will require us to find new ways to talk to each other.
The world is locked in a struggle between love and fear. Choose love. Always. It is the world’s oldest medicine. It is what we need to build a nation that is safe and strong for us and our children.
