Go Public!

A public healthcare system dedicated to compassionate care and innov​a​tive brea​kthroughs.

For over 140 years, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center has been an integral part of the public healthcare delivery system here in Santa Clara County. Then, as now, our mission has been to provide high quality care and excellent service to everyone in our community.

So, to celebrate this commitment, we’ve launched our first ever marketing campaign. Go Public! represents our dedication to elevating the perception of our public health system – by emphasizing our quality, research, teaching, innovation, and most importantly, our focus on a positive patient experience.

Go Public! Anthem

In a place where going public is something many aspire to,
we humbly went public day one.

Where capital gains are seen as enriching wealth,
we seek gains by increasing health.

Where some incubators back entrepreneurs,
ours start up tiny lives.

And the coding we do unlocks genetic secrets to better health.

Yes, something happens when a bunch of big-hearted types
in Silicon Valley are looking out for you,
a lot of healthy innovation ensues.

From inventively teaching one in four doctors valley-wide,
to employing digital health for the homeless.

So no matter what side of the valley you’re on –
whether tech nerd or ag nerd –
our healing nerds are there for you.

With the kinds of innovative care you’d expect here
in the land of innovation.

Making sure everyone’s health benefits.

Isn’t that what being the people’s health activist is all about?

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center GO PUBLIC! 

We’re YOUR healthcare provider in Santa Clara County,
proud to serve you, the public.​​
