El Rio Health is a non-profit health organization providing comprehensive, quality healthcare for a predominately low-income, minority population. El Rio provides culturally competent care by recognizing socioeconomic impacts that create barriers to quality healthcare, physically traveling to those who cannot visit the clinic in person and conversing with patients in their preferred language. Since 1970, El Rio has become one of the largest, most highly regarded integrated health centers in the country.
