Hello & Welcome!
We are Mendonoma Health Alliance, a local network of health care organizations focused on coordinating, improving, and expanding access to healthcare services in our coastal community.

To improve local access to wellness education, prevention services and quality healthcare through creative solutions in collaboration with our community
Optimal Health and Wellness for Everyone in our Community
Our Network Statement
"Nestled along a rugged coastline with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, our unique community encompasses a diverse group of small towns strung along 60 miles of the isolated Highway 1 corridor. The Mendonoma community is both resilient and vulnerable; most residents are all too familiar with the price that comes along with this treasured seclusion."
The goal of the Care Transitions Program is to facilitate a smooth transition back home from the hospital by providing coordination of services and access to resources. This program teaches clients self-advocacy and is not a home nursing program. Our Community Health Workers (CHW) provide one-on-one support following hospital discharges to help clients remain healthy and comfortably at home while eliminating readmission to the hospital. Services are available in Spanish.
CHWs can assist with medication adherence, transportation, coordinating follow-up visits, connecting clients with needed resources, and much more.
As stated in our mission and vision, MHA strives to improve access to wellness education and promote quality of life for everyone in our community. As part of this goal, MHA offers a variety of free educational workshops to our community. The information delivered during each workshop is presented by an expert in the corresponding topic.
Learn more about the workshops we offer and view information on our latest educational offerings.
Chronic Care Support Networks
MHA facilitates a peer support network for those in our community who have been diagnosed with a chronic condition like high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc. This network, led by our Community Health Workers, provides a source of encouragement and information sharing to help establish healthier lifestyle choices that assist clients in managing their chronic condition(s).

High blood pressure is referred to as the “silent killer” because there are often no symptoms. That is why it is so important to have your blood pressure checked regularly. In the months of February, May, August and November, MHA offers free blood pressure screenings throughout our service area.
Find a date and location of a screening near you, and learn more about the screenings we offer.
Coming soon: Cholesterol screening in coordination with regular blood pressure screening events.
The goal of MHA’s outreach program is to provide linkages to other local and county-wide resources for residents in our service area in order to promote optimal health. MHA strives to be the “one stop shop” for residents seeking information and resources that will help lead to a healthy, informed lifestyle.
Opioid Education, Prevention, & Wellness
MHA works collaboratively with eight other local and county-wide organizations to provide education, prevention and wellness resources to the community in an effort to combat the national opioid epidemic on a local level. With a focus on youth and the aging population, our goal is to equip the community with the resources needed to address addiction and harm reduction (overdose and the spread of infectious diseases) related to opioid misuse, while teaching the importance of awareness
