We will be closed on Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 17, to honor the birthdays of our great Presidents Lincoln and Washington.
Here are some fun facts for Presidents’ Day:
– Four Presidents were born in February: Washington (22), Lincoln (12), Harrison (9), and Reagan (6). February is a presidential month!
– President Harrison died just 32 days after becoming president, the shortest term of any president. He caught a cold during the pouring rain at his inauguration and it turned to pneumonia. It may not have helped that his inaugural address, at 2 hours, was the longest on record.
– The tallest President was Abraham Lincoln, at 6 feet, 4 inches, and James Madison was the shortest, exactly a foot shorter than Lincoln.
– James Madison and George Washington are the only presidents who signed the Constitution.
We will be open again on Tuesday, February 18. If you need us during the long weekend, or any time, just call (707) 964-1251 and the on call clinician will be happy to help you. We are always here for you, 24/7/365! #bestcareanywhere

Here we go! Matt Rowland Events is setting up The Big White Tent for our Crab Cake Cook Off on Saturday, February 1! Next week, this beautiful venue will be bustling with chefs making delectable crab cakes paired with fine local wine. It’s an unforgettable day and we look forward to it all year!
The Cook Off is sold out, but we still have availability for the 4:00 and 8:00 seatings for our famous Cioppino Dinner on Friday, January 31. It’s a feast like no other: savory, luscious cioppino served family style, with fresh bread from Fort Bragg Bakery, crisp tossed salad, ice cream for dessert, and a good cup of Thanksgiving Coffee Company coffee to top off the meal.
We are open today, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We are honoring Dr. King’s life and legacy by serving our community on this national day of service. Today and every day, we’re here, providing the #bestcareanywhere to anyone who needs us, including the most vulnerable members of our community.
Community Health Centers like MCC strengthen communities and save lives. Congress must act by December 20 or we risk losing long-term, stable funding.
We are pleased that key Congressional committees have reached an agreement on offsets to pay for a five-year extension of funding for CHCs and essential workforce programs. With an upcoming election year, a $23 trillion national debt, and impeachment proceedings, 2020 will be a challenging year for Congress. We must do our part to make sure Congress passes this funding so that health centers and patients are not put at risk.
Please contact your Members of Congress today and ask them to support Community Health Center funding:
