Founded in 1974, Clínica Tepati set out to address the healthcare gap in the Latino community of the greater Sacramento area. Although there has been advancements in medical access and technology, this community remains socioeconomically disadvantaged and medically underserved. According to the 2009 California Health Interview Survey, 27.3% of Latinos in Sacramento County live at or below the Federal Poverty Line and 15.8% have no health insurance at all. In addition, 21.1% report not having a regular source of healthcare to turn to when ill or in need of health advice. Clínica Tepati remains committed to addressing the unmet needs of this community and other underserved communities by providing quality, primary healthcare at no cost to our patients.
