(SCIHP) was established in 1971 by a group of leaders from the Indian communities of Sonoma County. Their goal was to provide health care for all Indians of Sonoma County and to provide services in a manner which is sensitive to the culture and traditions of the local Indian Tribes. Over the years, SCIHP has steadily progressed from a small organization consisting of a single dental chair and an exam table to the multimillion-dollar comprehensive health care facility it is today. Even in these turbulent times of health care and diminishing resources, we continue to grow. Because SCIHP is funded by State, County and private funds, we also provide care to non-Indians depending on the funding source. SCIHP has now expanded care to non-Indians with Medi-Cal on a limited basis. Cloverdale, Dry Creek, Graton, Lytton, Manchester Point Area and Stewarts Point Rancherias have designated SCIHP as a Tribal Organization, under PL 93-638. The Mishewal Wappo tribe is also one of the tribes that support SCIHP. SCIHP has 501(c)(3) status and is incorporated by the State of California as a non-profit organization.
