Mission Neighborhood Health Center (MNHC) honors our Latino roots with a tradition of providing compassionate, culturally competent, patient-centered care. We advocate for health equity and deliver innovative, high quality services responsive to the neighborhoods and diverse communities we serve.
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 nearly 13,000 patients at its four sites in the Mission and Excelsior neighborhoods of San Francisco.
MNHC delivers primary 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.
