Welcome to Mariposa Community Health Center

Helping to maintain the good health and happy lives of Santa Cruz County residents is the primary purpose of the Mariposa Community Health Center. Since our founding in 1980 we have become the largest and most comprehensive provider of medical, dental, disease prevention and health promotion services in SE Arizona. Our locations in Nogales, Rio Rico, Tubac and Patagonia offer a “one stop wellness” model of integrated care that recognizes and responds to the whole person from physical to social to psychological needs. Our services include adult/internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, general surgery, dentistry, behavioral health and two full-service pharmacies. Our community outreach stems from our Community Health Services Department (formerly Platicamos Salud), which includes an entire building devoted to WIC for Women, Infants and Children. For a family of one or a family of many, Mariposa is here for you. For appointments in Nogales, Patagonia, Rio Rico and Tubac, call (520) 281-1550.

Mariposa Community Health Center is an organization that is committed to maintaining good health and providing the best quality of care for our patients. For the past two years Mariposa employees have worked tirelessly to help manage the COVID-19 pandemic, from screening and testing to mass vaccination clinics. These operations take extensive efforts from many different teams and departments within our organization. Although the process has been challenging amid the COVID crisis, Mariposa has been able to keep all our locations open for our community.

We are an organization built on people, to serve the community of Santa Cruz County. We view this as a duty and a privilege. The pandemic has put strain on our resources, just as it has with every other healthcare organization in the country. If you have experienced any of this strain in any of your interactions with Mariposa, we humbly ask for your patience as we continue to navigate through this crisis. Mariposa is committed to continuous quality assurance and improvement. We welcome your feedback, positive or constructive, and remain committed to providing excellent quality care and customer services to all our patients and their families.
