Whole Person Care: La Clínica’s Model
message from the ceo
The social movements of the 1960s championed civil rights and social justice. During this time, civil rights activists recognized disparities in health outcomes and care access for low-income and marginalized communities. The concept of community health centers was born from this movement, and it sought to make high-quality and culturally competent health care accessible and affordable for all.

La Clínica Vallejo Hosts Open House
La Clínica held an open house of its newest comprehensive health center in downtown Vallejo. The open house included remarks from community partners, local elected officials, and supporters who made the expansion project a reality.
Guests were also invited to take part in tours of the health center and learn about the different integrated services all housed under one roof.
All That Jazz (& Sushi!): Celebrating 50+ Years
After a two-year hiatus because of the pandemic, La Clínica once again held its signature All That Jazz (& Sushi!) gala at Yoshi’s Jazz Club & Japanese Restaurant in Oakland. The gala commemorated 51 years since our founding and was an opportunity to celebrate our 50th anniversary of connecting communities to better health.
We would like to thank our guests and sponsors for their support and generous contributions, and everyone who made the evening such a great success.

in memory of Dr. Pescetti
Dr. John Pescetti came to La Clínica in August 1993. He devoted his entire career to the organization and retired after more than 25 years in 2018. Dr. Pescetti served as Associate Medical Director for Transit Village Pediatrics for the majority of that time and also served as Chief Medical Officer at a particularly challenging time for La Clínica. He always rose to whatever task was required, always with perseverance and humility.
His clinical pediatric leadership skills helped us maintain the high standards of pediatric care that continue to be one of La Clínica’s signature achievements. Dr. Pescetti’s patients loved him, and he loved them back. He cared deeply about his colleagues, and he mentored many young pediatricians and family physicians over his 25 years at La Clínica.
Dr. Pescetti will be remembered as a compassionate, accomplished, kind, and caring person. He will never be forgotten by those who loved and admired him.
