Nearly 50 years ago, four VISTA volunteers came to Orange County in response to a need that they saw to help provide basic health care to the many migrant workers and their families in the area. The organization they created has become Cornerstone Family Healthcare.
From our humble beginnings, our Health Center now provides more than 24,000 adults and children in our region with their comprehensive health care. Last year, we provided primary and preventative health care services totaling more than 210,000 patient visits.
Our staff of nearly 400 employees includes over 40 Board Certified/Board Eligible Physicians, and Dentists, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, a large nursing staff, and social work and counseling staff. A large number of our employees are bilingual.
As a federally qualified health center, Cornerstone Family Healthcare is protected against medical malpractice liability through the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). Cornerstone is currently under FTCA and all of our medical providers have malpractice coverage through FTCA.
We also have on site a full service pharmacy and lab that serves not only our patients, but the public as well. All medical providers are board eligible/board certified and have admitting privileges are our local hospital, St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital.
