The Mission of the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center is to provide high quality, comprehensive, and culturally appropriate primary health care to the communities of Washington and Yamhill counties with a special emphasis on migrant and seasonal farmworkers and others with barriers to receiving health care.
We believe that health care is a human right and that treating the whole person results in a healthier outcome.
We are committed to providing a safe, culturally competent environment where our patient’s diversity is celebrated and everyone is welcome.
We value our community and work every day to understand the needs of our patients through partnerships and innovative approaches to health care.
We strive to create an environment for our staff that encourages partnership. We understand that the work we do today ensures the health of our patients tomorrow.
We base all of our actions and decisions, fundamentally, in our quest to provide care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values, and to ensure that patient values guide all clinical decisions.
We value strategic partnerships as an approach to improving the health of our community.
We believe in nurturing health and wellness among our patients, employees and the community. We focus on health promotion and prevention of disease.
We believe in acknowledging and honoring people’s differences by drawing on the cultures, talents and ideas of a broader group of people. We seek to harness the strengths of our individuality for the common good. Our diversity allows the exploration of ways we are alike while also respecting our differences in a safe, positive and nurturing environment.
We commit to excellence in all our work. Foremost, we believe in applying high-quality, evidence-based care to all our patients.
We believe in innovation, growth and positive change in all we do.
We strive to eliminate health disparities by providing high-quality care regardless of a person’s socio-economic status while advocating for health policy consistent with our mission.

We value the service we provide to our patients, community partners, and each other. We maintain the integrity and self-esteem of each person we serve by listening to understand, responding to their needs in a timely manner, following through on our commitments, and seeking feedback for continuous improvement.
