Mission Statement

CommuniCare+OLE’s mission is to provide comprehensive and high-quality health care to anyone in our community regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. Our mission is characterized by the following commitments: - We deliver health care in a supportive, safe environment emphasizing patient partnership, wellness, and preventive health in all of our services. - We value the importance of a teaching and learning environment at all levels of the organization. - We are committed to the underlying philosophy that health care is a right, not a privilege.

Description

Established in 2023, CommuniCare+OLE is a union of two health centers with deep roots in their respective communities with reputations for providing high-quality primary care to patients and clients.: OLE Health of Napa and Solano Counties, and CommuniCare Health Centers of Yolo County.
Building on a legacy established by each organization in 1972, CommuniCare+OLE is a network of federally qualified health centers with 17 sites across Napa, Solano, and Yolo Counties. It offers comprehensive care, including medical, dental, behavioral health and substance use treatment, nutrition, optometry, pharmacy, care coordination, referrals, and enrollment assistance to more than 70,000 individuals, and no one is turned away due to lack of insurance, immigration status, or ability to pay. Many services are offered outside of its sites, including mobile health, home visiting, and community and school-based programs.
In October 2023, OLE Health of Napa and Solano and CommuniCare Health Centers of Yolo County announced a legally executed merger between the two organizations and unveiled their new brand: CommuniCare OLE. As a critical part of the healthcare safety net, CommuniCare OLE ensures care for everyone, regardless of ability to pay or insurance status.
CommuniCare+OLE’s services include Primary Care, Behavioral Health, Substance Use Services, Perinatal Care, Dental Care, Pediatrics, Sexual Health, Women’s Health, LGBTQIA+ Affirming Care, Diabetes Education and Food and Nutrition services.
