Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission

SAC Health System is committed to reflect the healing ministry & love of Jesus Christ through healthcare, education and partnerships that empower our communities to flourish.

Education

Education

SAC Health System is the largest specialty-based and teaching health center (THC) FQHC in the nation. Consistent with our mission and values, we provide over 900+ medical residents and students from Loma Linda University a unique opportunity to serve our most vulnerable population which will allow them to continue to be leaders in our community.

Healthcare

Healthcare

SAC Health System is recognized as a Level-3 Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). All our physicians are affiliated with Loma Linda University Health, allowing our patients to receive world-class care from providers trained in over 35 different specialties. Our unique model of care allows patients to see integrated behavioral health, dieticians, clinical pharmacists, social workers, and even a chaplain all within the same office visit if needed. This whole-person, full-scope, team-based approach is what makes SAC Health System the provider of choice for patients.

Partnership

Partnership

Underserved populations require an array of supports that extend beyond our work, and we know that we cannot achieve our mission. Our success on our own is built on building strong partnerships with more than 100 community partners and leveraging the expertise of partner organizations to ensure we provide our patients with whole-person care.

Our Vision

Transforming lives with exceptional healthcare thru Christ's hope and healing.
