Nonprofit San Diego Family Care will open an expanded health center in Linda Vista in May, creating a one-stop medical, dental and mental health facility.

The 23,000-square foot expansion, which opens May 9, is expected to serve an additional 40,000 patients compared to the previous facility.

Over the years the building at 7011 Linda Vista Road was home to a supermarket, a thrift store and bargain outlet. It has been completely renovated and outfitted with 19 exam rooms, six dental areas, a private mental health pavilion, a lab, a pharmacy and five waiting rooms.

Multiple insurance types are accepted, including MediCal and Medicare, and all services are available on a sliding fee scale to uninsured individuals.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to further serve our community with increased access to quality care through this new health center,” said Roberta Feinberg, chief executive officer on the nonprofit.

Established in the early 1970s, San Diego Family Care operates seven community health centers in City Heights and Linda Vista.
