On August 14, 2013, the unincorporated areas of Ashland/Cherryland celebrated the groundbreaking of a new site for Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. (TVHC). The groundbreaking ceremony coincided with National Health Center Week of August 12-17, and commenced at 2pm at 16110 East 14th Street, San Leandro, CA. Confirmed speakers at the groundbreaking included Juan Gomez, TVHC Board Member, David B. Vliet, CEO for TVHC, the Honorable Nate Miley, with an invocation given by the Reverend Doctor Arlene Nehring, Senior Pastor, Eden United Church of Christ.

This new health care home will include clinical and enabling service space that will offer primary and behavioral healthcare services–as well as social and supportive services to TVHC’s patients and clients.
