About Us

A Family Helping Other Families

Our Mission

To promote health and wellness through excellent, compassionate care for all.


Marin Community Clinics has provided compassionate and affordable health care to uninsured and low-income residents of Marin County since 1972. We have grown from humble beginnings where volunteer physicians and nurses saw patients in church basements, to a 21st century provider with modern facilities, expert paid physicians and nurses, the latest technology, and sophisticated diagnostic, treatment and prevention programs. Today, we serve more than 38,000 individuals every year in clinics spread throughout Marin County.

As the largest community health center in the County, we play a major role in Marin’s health care network, serving patients with insurance as well as those who are ineligible for insurance coverage.

Marin Community Clinics provides a full range of primary health care as well as dentistry, behavioral health, obstetrics & gynecology, family planning, optometry, chiropractic, and several specialty services.

Compassionate Health Care for our Community

Marin Community Clinics is an independent, nonprofit organization that is a vital part of the healthcare network of our community. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, we serve patients from all walks of life. Our patients include those who are employed and have private health insurance, people enrolled in Covered California plans, people covered by public insurance programs, and those with limited or no health insurance. No one is turned away and charges are based on each individual’s ability to pay.

Thanks to the community support and government reimbursement that we receive, thousands of uninsured women, men, teens, and children have access to medical and dental care. As a result, more children and adults are receiving regular check-ups and are immunized, employees can stay healthier, and medical problems are addressed before they become life-threatening, and costly to treat.

Our values guide our work every day.

We believe that access to quality healthcare is a basic human right and one of the foundations of a strong community. Accessible, excellent healthcare and wellness programs have the power to improve the quality of lives, communities and the world. Therefore, our work is grounded in these guiding principles:


We embrace opportunities for culturally responsive communication and actively work to dismantle our community's barriers to health equity through education and training.


We commit to accountability in all we do, and demonstrating respectful, courteous, and compassionate care of the highest quality for our patients and community.


We strive for professional excellence that requires personal and organizational integrity and a collective commitment to high standards and ethical behavior.


We work to strengthen and enhance the adaptive capacity of the organization to grow sustainably and strategically in order to absorb external impact.

With my chronic health problems, having reliable medical care is essential. At Marin Community Clinics I found more than just brilliant doctors and modern exam rooms. When I walk in I feel welcomed and valued as a patient and a person. The medical and dental staff know me, care about my needs, and work as an efficient and knowledgeable team to coordinate my care.

El servicio enfrente con los recepcionistas es muy bueno y las enfermeras también. Estoy muy contenta venir a mis citas. (Translation: “The service of the receptionists is very good and the nurses are very good, too. I’m happy to come to my appointments.)

José at the front desk is always so pleasant and so very helpful, as well as quick and efficient. Dr. Popat is patient and kind…very knowledgeable and never judgmental. He takes the time to answer my questions. Wait time is so much better now, too.
