About Community Medical Centers, INC.
Community Medical Centers, Inc. (CMC) began in the 1960's as a volunteer effort of the San Joaquin Medical Society, the San Joaquin Local Health District and the Community Action Council. Local physicians, nurses, dentists and community activists who recognized the lack of health and social services programs formed service teams to address the needs of migrant farm workers and their families. The providers went out to the fields and worked from their cars to deliver medical care, to supply food and clothing and to link families with available services. In 1967, the San Joaquin Medical Society received state and federal funding to support the development of two small facilities, as well as mobile clinics to provide services throughout the county. From these early beginnings, CMC has grown to provide comprehensive primary and preventive care at eleven clinical sites in the counties of San Joaquin, Solano, and Yolo.
