Healthcare For Our Community
Open Door Community Health Centers was founded with a vision to provide excellent health care and health education to an underserved part of California, at a time when the region suffered from a shortage of access.
Starting as a single clinic in 1971, Open Door now has 12 community health centers across Humboldt and Del Norte counties – a service area larger than the state of Connecticut – serving more than 55,000 patients a year and employing almost 600 members of the community.
