Santa Clara Valley Medical Center Hospital and Clinics (SCVMC) is the largest health system in Silicon Valley. For over 140 years, SCVMC has been Santa Clara County’s “most essential” hospital. Then and now, the mission has always been to provide high quality care and excellent service to everyone in our community. Owned and operated by the County of Santa Clara, SCVMC is the only healthcare provider in the region with a 100% open door policy, providing care to anyone regardless of ability to pay. Fully 1 in 4 residents of Santa Clara County rely on SCVMC for their care, and SCVMC is the overwhelming provider of health services to low-income individuals and families.
As home to San Jose’s only top level trauma center, and the only Comprehensive Emergency Department in the entire Bay Area, SCVMC provides life-saving services that can benefit every area residents, regardless of where they might normally receive their care.SCVMC is affiliated with the Stanford University School of Medicine and trains nearly a quarter of all physicians practicing in the valley in addition to nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and more.
A leader in quality care, SCVMC has a long track record of innovation. From being one of the safest hospitals in California to deliver a baby, to pioneering new methods to treat paralysis with stem cells and bionics. At SCVMC, being a public hospital is not about providing care to those without other options. It is about addressing the most pressing health needs of all residents, and ensuring those services are at the ready, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
