I have joined the fundraising team for Building a Better Napa because I want to support Ole Health (formerly Clinic Ole) as it expands its services to South Napa. When I lost my health insurance along with my job in 2004, I went to Clinic Ole for health care. Now that I have a new job and health insurance, I still go there for all my primary care needs. They provide quality care. The staff is friendly and caring. I could go anywhere now for my health needs but why should I? Whenever I go there, I am reminded of what a treasure the Napa Valley has in Ole Health. Please help me raise funds so they can better serve our community.

OLE Health (formerly Clinic Ole) is raising money to build a new health care facility in Napa to help address the shortage of healthcare options for everyday Napa residents. We rely on contributions from supporters like you to help keep our doors open.
- OLE Health has been taking care of the most vulnerable populations in Napa County for over 40 years. We are this regions oldest community health center and have played a big role in making sure those who need quality healthcare receive it, regardless of their ability to pay.
- In 2016, we are serving 33,154 patients and enrolling 300 new patients each month.This reflects a patient population growth of 75% in five years.
- OLE Health must expand to serve the growing patient population of Napa County that relies on us to meet their healthcare needs.
- We have outgrown the capacity of its current facilities in 2013 and has since exceeded that level by 8,154 patients by renting temporary space. We cannot hire more medical providers to care for new patients due to the lack of space.
The Napa Valley's needs are changing, with each day that passes, more and more of our neighbors are unable to access health care services because our region simply does not have the resources, facilities or medical providers needed to accommodate the children, seniors and families in desperate need of care in our community.
In an area known for world-class living and luxury, we can take the next step in leading the effort to expand access for our community’s most vulnerable populations including low-income residents, children, and seniors.
