Outpatient Clinic Offers Relief To Severely Underserved Coachella Valley Residents
“When I found out about the pavilion I knew my prayers were answered,” Angelina Castelberry said. The current rate of medical care offered in the area is one physician per 9,000 people. It should be one for 2,500.

Outpatient Pavilion Planned For Indio
This 12,000-square-foot pavilion planned for the corner of Smurr and Civic Center streets is only the first step in bringing more medical care to the severely understaffed eastern valley. The current rate is one physician per 9,000 people but it should be one for 2,500. The outpatient pavilion will be run by Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital in cooperation with Social Action Corps Health System, a nonprofit community health-care corporation that provides affordable health-care services for all, but primarily serves uninsured patients and their families.
