At Wilshire, we believe in serving the Central Coast with integrity, trust and innovation. Seventy years experience in the healthcare industry has taught us that these values are integral to being a supportive health care and community-based agency. Together these values encourage our team as a whole, no matter their role, to go above and beyond to do “whatever it takes” for our patients and clients. This allows you to get back to living a better life, so that we can be there for you, your family, your neighbors and your friends.

Recognize some of these local Central Coast faces? Meet our leadership team. We want you to know that the person we are taking care of is as much a part of our community as they are in yours: because it’s the Central Coast way.

Want to learn more? Reach out. We’d love to meet you. Whether it’s a phone call, home visit, a tour of our offices, or meeting for a cup of coffee, we want to hear from you!
