The Goleta Neighborhood Clinics (GNC) are now accepting new patients of all ages and backgrounds. They accept Medi-Cal, Medicare, Healthy Kids, FamilyPACT, EWC/CDP, and various PPO Plans. The clinics also offer a sliding fee discount for low income patients based upon income level.
The clinics are part of the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics (SBNC) whose mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive, affordable healthcare to all people, regardless of their ability to pay, in an environment that fosters respect, compassion and dignity.
The SBNC patient population of more than 17,000 individuals is primarily made up of medically underserved community members, including low-income working individuals and families, the unemployed, and those that are homeless or uninsured.
Services include comprehensive medical care, comprehensive dental care, behavioral health, and enabling service assistance, which includes non-clinical services such as health education, interpretation, and case management. This is known as “whole person” care. A patient’s entire family can visit the dentist, a pediatrician, receive chronic care management services, behavioral health care, and garner information on preventative medical care, and healthy lifestyle practices all from within our clinics.
SBNC also maintains collaborative partnerships with other local health service providers and community-based organizations to ensure that our patients are provided with all the community services available to meet their needs.
Goleta Health Initiative
Initiated through a grant received from the Health Resources and Services Administration, targeted to offering comprehensive medical, dental and behavioral health services to those without current medical homes, SBNC began the Goleta Health Initiative project in 2013.
