About Us

Founded in 1971 the Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center has delivered culturally and linguistically appropriate services to residents of southern Alameda County for over 40 years. Last year, our clinics served nearly 15,000 clients, providing primary health care and mental health services to men, women and children of all ages.

We believe in holistic health care, and that it takes more than a prescription to promote good health. In addition to the health services provided at our clinics in Hayward and Union City, we also provide numerous social services to the community, including perinatal and family counseling, walking groups and Zumba classes, enrollment in Women Infants and Children (WIC), family planning and health education, school–based health services, community clean–up days, and much more.
