About us

In 1989, the Soledad Medical Clinic was opened as an outpatient, family medicine, rural health clinic.

The Soledad Medical Clinic provides high quality healthcare services to the people of Soledad and surrounding communities. SCHCD is committed to providing broad access to high quality health care for infants, children, adults, and seniors, and to administering a wide range of programs which greatly enhance patient access.


Soledad is the fastest growing community in Monterey County. Compared to the more urban areas of Monterey County, Soledad has a statistically lower average household income, a larger family size, a larger percentage of minorities, and our population is primarily employed in agriculture.

During the next five years the city’s population growth is expected to continue growing rapidly. As the community grows, so does the health care needs. Identifying and meeting the needs of the Soledad community is our first priority, thus the Soledad Rural Health Clinic seeks to expand programs and services to serve the growing local demand.

The population of Soledad at recent census was just under 23,000. The clinic is accessed by a population that includes the surrounding communities and rural areas in south Monterey Count. This adds an additional 30,000 people to the area that seeks our Medical Clinic services.
