Mission Neighborhood Health Center (MNHC) was founded as a health center in 1967 to respond to the healthcare needs of low income families in the Mission neighborhood community in San Francisco. From the humble beginnings of delivering care in a trailer in the parking lot at our Shotwell Street site for $1 per visit, we have grown to become an integral part of the community. Each year, MNHC serves over 12,000 patients at its sites in the Mission and Excelsior neighborhoods of San Francisco.
MNHC delivers primary and behavioral health care services across the life-cycle including prenatal care, pediatrics, teen services, family planning, women’s health services and adult and senior medicine. MNHC also provides specialized HIV services at its Clinica Esperanza and a program of support and health services to the homeless through our Mission Neighborhood Resource Center.
Over the years, the community has come to rely on Mission Neighborhood Health Center to respond to their evolving needs.
Our values honor Mission Neighborhood Health Center’s rich legacy and reflect how we engage with our patients and the community.
· Passion for service: We are a dedicated, compassionate team committed to our mission of providing equitable health care for all.
· Cultural Embrace: We believe everyone deserves respect, equity, and dignity. We respect and honor the values and traditions of our patients.

· Clinical Excellence: In support of the wellness and healing of our patients and community, we value high quality, evidence-driven, team-based care.
