Planned Parenthood’s Mountain View clinic, in operation since 1973, faces the threat of closure this spring not because of national political forces, but rather the local real estate market.
The clinic, located at the intersection of San Antonio Road and California Street, treats an estimated 8,000 patients annually, more than 80 percent of whom are Santa Clara County residents. Planned Parenthood’s health centers have expanded beyond reproductive medicine and women’s health care to include primary care service for men, women and families. It is one of the providers for patients on Medi-Cal, the low-income health care service expanded under the Affordable Care Act.
