How To Schedule An Appointment

We want to make your experience at our Health Centers as comfortable and convenient as possible. For optimal health for both you and you your baby, please call for an appointment as soon as you know you are pregnant.

To schedule a prenatal care appointment call 530-887-2810 for our Auburn Health Center or 530-477-1727 for our Grass Valley Health Center.

We have same-day appointments that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you would like to schedule a same-day appointment we recommend you call us as soon as we open at 8 a.m.

In some instances, we will re-direct patients with urgent problems to the local emergency room or urgent care center. It is best to call us and see if we can accommodate your urgent need prior to coming into our community health centers. However, if you think you are experiencing an emergency, call 911 immediately.
