Farmworker Health Clinic Changes its Name

From ModBee.com, The Modesto Bee, “Farmworker health clinic changes its name” by Mark Glover, 13 Apr. 2011.

Yuba City-based Del Norte Clinics Inc., which has long provided health care to migrant farmworkers and low-income residents in Northern California, has changed its name to Ampla Health.

DNCI originated in 1964 as a medical care project for migrant farmworkers under State Farm Workers Health Service and Migrant Health Act funding; it first operated as a night clinic at Sutter County General Hospital.

The Del Norte Clinics name was adopted in 1993.

“Our new name better reflects the capabilities and focus of our system,” said Benjamin Flores, president and CEO. “Ampla is a word with familiar sounds that are closely associated with terms such as ample and amplify.

“Both of these describe our goal of providing ample health care to our patients and families as we seek to amplify their quality of life through superior health care and exceptional customer service.”

Ampla has a network of 12 centers offering health care and dental services in Northern California.
