The Parktree Community Health Center (PCHC) is a 501(c)(3) Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) providing comprehensive primary care medical services to the underserved population of Pomona and the surrounding areas.
ParkTree was founded in 1995 as the “Pomona Clinic Coalition” by Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center and other local healthcare providers in response to the burgeoning indigent and working poor population in the eastern end of Los Angeles County and to address the region’s lack of adequate public health infrastructure.
The organization was incorporated in 2005, received its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in 2007 and started its first year as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) status in 2014. The health center was the vision of Dr. Jamie Garcia and founded with her spirit of heart and hope.
ParkTree Community Health Center provides a welcoming and inclusive healthcare environment for our patients, employees and the community. It is a place where everyone can feel safe and secure knowing that diversity and uniqueness is not just tolerated, but appreciated. ParkTree’s success is due to the variety of backgrounds, experiences, and points of view that our employees bring to the table. We pride ourselves in our efforts to recruit and hire from the local community to better understand and serve our diverse community. We believe in the importance of equity and will continue to provide access and high quality care to all regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and age.
