The Big Sur Health Center, founded in September 1979, serves as the only medical facility between the Monterey Peninsula and Cambria that is able to provide quality comprehensive healthcare services to the residents of the Big Sur coast.

"I'm thrilled to recognize the important work of the Big Sur Health Center as the Assembly District 30 Non-Profit of the Year," Addis said.
