San Jose

Nicknamed the capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose is a diverse area with an innovative spirit. While it has a distinct downtown, San Jose is a sprawling metro area that is as much defined by its suburban neighborhoods and large tech campuses as it is by the high-rises in its business district. San Jose’s proximity to other tech headquarters in Silicon Valley, including Google in Mountain View and Apple in Cupertino, cements San Jose’s position in the tech hub. But the metro area also retains its character with quirky attractions like the 160-room, maze-like Winchester Mystery House; a 120-acre flea market complete with ponies; and a larger-than-life Monopoly board. Cradled by the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains and Diablo Range, San Jose offers a prime environment for outdoorsy residents, with its proximity to the ocean, the Sierra Nevada and the vineyards – not to mention about 300 sunny days a year.

San Jose Kaiser’s catchment area goes as far north as San Jose and as far south as Los Banos. The population within this area is varied and we see an exceedingly diverse population in our clinic, both in terms of ethnicity, but also in terms of religion, language, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation.
In our San Jose Child Psychiatry Department, we also have a dedicated Spanish Speaking team to serve the Spanish speaking population in our area.
