You've Got Our Number


Ukiah Valley Medical Center along with Howard Memorial Hospital, St. Helena Hospital Clearlake, and St. Helena Hospital Napa have partnered together to provide a Live Physician Directory, a physician referral service to help residents find the right doctor for their needs.

According to Joshua Cowan, Vice President of Marketing for the Adventist Health Northern California Network, “We’re excited to offer this service to the communities we serve.”

When asked how it works, Cowan said, “It’s simple; by calling one number you have access to 320 doctors. Our patient advocates will discuss the available doctors with you and then help guide you to the provider of your choice. For example, if you’re looking for a pediatrician for your son or daughter in Ukiah you can call the number and the patient advocate will direct you to the right office and even schedule an appointment for you during normal business hours.”

Gwen Matthews, CEO at UVMC shared her enthusiasm for this service as well, “We want to make it as easy as possible for those in the communities we serve to find the right doctor, whether it is for them personally or a loved one. It’s often hard to find a new doctor; this process will help make it easier. Our patient advocates will help answer your questions and help navigate you to the right doctor for you.”

To find the right doctor for you call the toll free number at 1-(800)-540-3611. Patient advocates are standing by 24-hours--day, seven-days--week.
