A Community Partner 
 
 
 

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center is committed to providing quality patient care to our community of San Luis Obispo. As part of an investor-owned hospital system, Sierra Vista pays more than $1.2 million in local taxes that go toward the improvement of local infrastructure and community programs.

Our hospital takes the complex issues facing uninsured patients very seriously. As such, Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center has adopted Tenet's Compact with Uninsured Patients policy. The program offers discount rates to all uninsured patients who receive treatment at our hospital, regardless of their income level.
