At Elica Health Centers (EHC), we are committed to providing quality health care services, emphasizing prevention, wellness, health education, and disease management, which improve community health outcomes.
In partnership with other organizations, EHC is dedicated to administering professional and compassionate health homes that serve the needs of low-income, multi-ethnic populations throughout the greater Sacramento area, particularly immigrant communities, including Slavic and others.
At Elica Health Centers, we believe in and are guided by the following four values and ethical principles:
To recognize the inherent worth of each person and to honor the human dignity of all persons, regardless of social status, race, ethnicity, or religious beliefs.
To act with trustworthiness, honesty, transparency, and accountability when dealing with individuals, groups, and partners while providing medical care and conducting business.
To participate and work with other individuals and service provider organizations who share like values and goals in order to achieve a preferred outcome, supportive relationships, and quality services.
To work for the benefit and good of others, out of a spirit of dedication and compassion for people in medical need and to seek to further their well-being and meet their expectations.
Every person has access to timely, preventive, and appropriate health care that allows them to live their life as fully as possible.
Today, Elica stands as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), a designation given by the Federal government to community-based clinics that meet a rigorous set of requirements.
Our mission is to provide high quality, affordable health care through the operation of professional and compassionate health homes for underserved populations, who are confronted with barriers to accessing care.
Our Strategic Plan
Elica has 10 medical centers in Sacramento and Yolo counties along with three mobile clinics. We expect to launch a fourth mobile clinic in 2020.
Given the tremendous need for primary medical and dental care among tens of thousands of the Sacramento region’s medically-underserved low-income and homeless populations, Elica seeks opportunities to collaborate with like-minded organizations that want to increase access to affordable quality healthcare. Our partners include, for example: The City of Sacramento’s Pathways to Health & Home program, U.C. Davis, San Juan Unified School District, Twin Rivers Unified School District, and the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA).
Improving the health and wellness of our community.
Enhance the integrated health delivery system by working with service providers to meet community needs.
Provide the right service, in the right place, at the right time.
Advance a customer and patient first focused culture.
Elica’s new Patients First service delivery model will engage both providers and staff inpatient care. Our providers and staff will team with patients and their families to understand and respect each patient’s unique healthcare needs. Elica’s Patients First approach will allow our providers to have more uninterrupted time with each patient, while teaching our patients to manage their own healthcare.
Recruit, retain and recognize a quality workforce.
Recruit, develop, retain, and recognize providers and staff who offer world-class care and are committed to the mission of Elica Health Centers
The demand for Elica’s healthcare services continues to grow rapidly. For example, we served nearly 30,000 patients in 2018—over 33% more patients than we served the previous year. We expect to serve approximately 42,000 patients in 146,000 visits during 2019.
Actively seek and implement opportunities
During 2020, Elica will open a new, larger medical center on Watt Avenue to provide greater service to the North Highlands communities, respectively.
Our Community Outreach
Elica seeks opportunities to partner with community service organization and participate in community health events.
