Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC- Today, Congressman Jim Costa (D-Fresno) announced that a grant of $66,667 has been awarded to the Valley Health Team in San Joaquin, CA.  These funds are being awarded through the Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Center Cluster program.  The Health Center Cluster program helps finance essential community facilities for public use in rural areas. 

“Rural communities in California are often underserved with medical care, but the Valley Health Team has been providing rural residents in western Fresno County with high-quality service for over thirty years,” Costa said.  “This grant will allow them to continue to provide health services for those who need it most.” 

The Valley Health Team, Inc. was established in 1973 to provide a range of outpatient services to the rural communities in western Fresno County.  Over 35 years later, they continue to provide medical care to residents of rural towns regardless of the patients’ ability to pay for the service.
