Canopy Health Expands Its Reach in Santa Clara County

In early 2018, Canopy Health announced a significant expansion, including broader access to care in Santa Clara County. In addition to its already robust alliance, Canopy Health members can now be treated by physicians at Good Samaritan Hospital, the Regional Medical Center of San Jose, and the Santa Clara County IPA (SCCIPA). 

Santa Clara County is one of the most populous Bay Area counties and home to Silicon Valley. As our membership grew, we realized that Canopy Health needed a larger presence in the area. Adding Good Samaritan Hospital and the Regional Medical Center of San Jose to our alliance provides our members with improved access to care and treatment options. It also reflects our mission of providing refreshingly clear, human care throughout the Bay Area.
