As a member of Trinity Health, we serve nearly 235,000 people each year, helping move lives forward on the path to good health.

We are further expanding our programs to give Valley residents greater access to needed primary and specialty care. This includes offering several new Saint Agnes Care sites in Fresno and Clovis, as well as two Urgent Care facilities for those minor illnesses and injuries that can't wait for an appointment.

In addition to growing our physical presence, Saint Agnes is also focused on continuing its strong partnerships with two regional providers to form an integrated health care delivery network unlike any other in the region.
