As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Elica is an integral part of the regional health safety net. It serves as a “one stop shop” that provides a range of clinical, outreach and social assistance services to eligible individuals in Sacramento and its surrounding communities, regardless of their ability to pay.
Elica offers primary and preventive health care visits, lab services, dental care, mental health services, podiatric care and case management, all of which are conveniently located, coordinated and tailored to meet the needs of our patients. With a staff as diverse as the patients we serve, our providers and staff are committed to creating a culturally sensitive, multilingual environment in which to deliver these services.
Studies show that FQHCs, which focus on providing care to Medicaid recipients, help reduce overall health care costs, particularly the burden to hospitals and health care systems. As a result, Elica Health Centers and other FQHCs have become central to health care reform.
