Our Future of Care

The crisis created by the fire has given West County Health Centers the opportunity to build The Health Center of the Future. The New Russian River Health & Wellness Center will be a three story OSHPD-3 compliant medical, dental & behavioral health facility located on 1.8 park-like acres in Guerneville. We envision the New Russian River Health & Wellness Center as a community hub for health & well-being where community members meet one another, and access critical health care services.












The strength of our Health Center is in the people… our staff, our care teams,our patients and our community. We will rebuild our Russian River Health Center building and we look forward to the opportunity to create something even better for our patients.” – Mary Szecsey, Chief Executive Officer, West County Health Centers
