History Highlights
1967—Members of the Alviso community with help from the Stanford Medical
School and the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity start the Alviso Family
Health Center, later known as the Family Health Foundation of Alviso to
address the community’s pressing need for medical services that were then
non-existent. When services expanded from Alviso into the city of San Jose,
following the needs of its growing patient base, the name was changed to the
Family Health Foundation.
1968—A community group in the Gardner neighborhood of San Jose, again
with the help of the Stanford Medical School & Sacred Heart Church began to
organize the Gardner Health Center to address the medical needs of the
cannery workers in that area of San Jose. This population, working in the fruit
packing plants shared the same demographics, race, culture & language & the
same needs for non-existent medical care as the Alviso workers who picked the
fruit.
1997—Gardner Health Center & the Family Health Foundation merge &
became Gardner Family Health Network, providing primary medical care &
Gardner Family Care Corporation, providing behavioral care/substance abuse
services.
