Building a Culture of Care

At Adelante Healthcare, we understand the need to care for our bodies and minds. We believe in the care of the whole person and aspire daily to be champions of access to excellent, compassionate care, meeting people when and where they need us. Our purpose is to help individuals and our communities thrive.

Adelante Healthcare’s roots were planted over 40 years ago in response to migrant workers needing accessible, quality care. Then, Clínica Adelante visited farms and provided a safe place for those who would have otherwise lived in the shadows without healthcare. While we have grown and expanded from our humble beginnings, our commitment to service and access to care remains.

Today, Adelante Healthcare is a certified community health center with nine locations in Arizona, serving Maricopa County. Our passionate and highly skilled team members serve a diverse mix of patients, regardless of a person’s background, status, or station in life. We are culturally fluent and able to respond to and serve diverse healthcare needs. Our services cover the whole person, including adult and family medicine, pediatrics, women’s health, nutrition services, dental, and behavioral health.

As healthcare leaders, we are dedicated to cultivating thriving communities. We believe that by fostering healthy, empowered communities, we help people reach their best. We are the bridge assisting people in meeting their potential as we guide them on their healthcare journey. At Adelante, we go beyond healthcare to create a true Culture of Care.

Our Story

In 1979, a group of dedicated community members in rural Surprise and El Mirage, Arizona saw that the health care needs of local farm workers were going unmet. These concerned citizens decided to join forces and apply for federal funding to build a community health center in El Mirage.

The following year, a grant was awarded to establish Clínica Adelante, our first location. We visited farms and provided a safe place for compassionate care for those who would have otherwise lived in the shadows with none at all.

These humble beginnings formed the roots of our belief in sustainable healthcare and our ongoing mission to provide for any member of our community who needs it, regardless of their circumstances.
