Services

Community Medical Centers (CMC) Early Intervention Services (EIS) Program is federally-funded by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and has been providing quality, outpatient health care for treatment and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS and their affected family members in Stockton and throughout San Joaquin County for over 20 years. Services include a variety of outpatient clinical and wraparound non-medical care to link and retain patients/clients in treatment that will become and continue to be undetectable (the level of HIV in the body is so low that it is non-infectious, or untransmittable, to other people). According to the World Health Organization, HIV infection has become a chronic disease, and people living with HIV are surviving, aging, and requiring lifelong care and treatment.

CMC is an organization of 20+ community health center locations staffed by Internal or Family Medicine, Women's Health/OB, and Pediatric providers who are committed to delivering the most advanced treatment and medical care to their patients in a supportive and caring environment. CMC serves over 88,000 patients in the San Joaquin County area. There are two trained physicians and one nurse practitioner who highly specialize in the treatment of HIV/AIDS and the knowledge of appropriate care guidelines for the prescription of antiretroviral (ART) medications. They are also skilled in the treatment of Hepatitis C (HCV). The Program staff consists of two bilingual (Spanish) Medical Case Managers who help coordinate treatment and services, as well as provide specific support/wraparound care. They are certified enrollment workers for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP), which also administers the Health Insurance Premium Payment (HIPP) and PrEP Assistance Programs. Privacy and confidentiality are valuable to us.
