Long-time residents of the downtown community will remember the long struggle to prevent the closure of the old San Jose Medical Center. The former owners, Hospital Corporation of America, shut-down the facility in 2004. That decision led to a significant increase in patient visits to the VMC Emergency Department, and created new barriers to health care access for many downtown residents.

Thanks to the voters of Santa Clara County and the leadership of the Board of Supervisors, public funds were approved in 2008 to build a new clinic. The VMC Foundation was honored to play a significant role in securing voter approval for the project. After extensive planning and design efforts,  construction set to begin.

Please join county, health and community leaders are we celebrate this important milestone.
