Creating a healthy community takes dedication, compassion and strong partnerships. Kaweah Delta's Community Outreach Department regularly develops new partnerships to enhance the education, awareness and prevention activities it conducts.
Community Outreach currently has six areas of focus: Diabetes Outreach, The Bridge, USC Mobile Dental Clinic, Bi-National Health Week and the Samaritan Center.
The Samaritan Center is a free clinic operated by the Visalia Ecumenical Charities that offers health care to uninsured Visalia residents. All services are provided by volunteer medical staff. Kaweah Delta partners with the Center by providing staff support in the form of an on-site administrative clerk and promotora, the only non-volunteer staff. Kaweah Delta also provides vouchers to Samaritan Center patients who can not afford ancillary services.
