Since 1969, San Ysidro Health Center has been the leader in the provision of low-cost, high quality, comprehensive primary care services to residents of San Diego County's South Bay Region. Area residents who recognized the need for quality health services in their community began San Ysidro Health Center (SYHC) as a voluntary program in August 1968 through a collaborative partnership with the University of California San Diego School of Medicine. Medical services were initially provided from a small house on the property at 4004 Beyer Boulevard, where the current health center is located. SYHC incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in 1971 and the original clinic was built the following year. The health center has grown steadily over the years driven by the community's need for essential health and social services. Today, SYHC maintains a beautiful 50,000 square foot medical center on the original clinic site in San Ysidro and has clinics in Chula Vista and National City that are strategically located to serve the medical needs of the entire South Bay Region.
SYHC has been recognized by Federal, State and Local entities as a leader in the creation and development of many of the more creative and successful forces in Health Care Prevention nationwide. Among these has been the leadership in the development of a locally managed care system, a comprehensive mental health program incorporated into the traditional primary care service matrix, and a series of joint and collaborative health education and promotion programs which have reached across the border into Mexico. These programs were among the first to acknowledge that the border is a porous one, that diseases and disease states do not stop at the check point, and that they must be addressed in a binational, cooperative manner.
