Our clinic began over 17 years ago with a dream to meet the needs of our diverse population in Salt Lake City. With the great needs of under-served people in the valley and the love of different cultures, the clinic was born. It is now owned and run by Lupe Cruz, CNM, FNP-C. The heart of the clinic and the desire to help our undeserved community still remains as strong as ever.
