Dr. Mudit Gilotra is a family physician and the Medical Director of the Valley Homeless Healthcare Program (VHHP). He provides direct patient care to children and adults across VHHP's sites; he also provides strategic planning, operational, and day-to-day management of VHHP. Over the last two years, Mudit has led the creation of multiple new clinics and services, including the Hope Clinic, which provides critical medical and mental health services to longtime homeless patients who are entering permanent supportive housing. In response to the exponential increase in street homelessness, Mudit has led the expansion of VHHP's street medicine program from a one-day-a-week to a five-days-a-week multi-disciplinary primary care clinic, where care is delivered in encampments and on the street at numerous fixed and mobile locations across the County of Santa Clara.
The compassionate VHHP team strives to promote human dignity, relieve suffering, and provide hope so that youth and adults experiencing homelessness in the County of Santa Clara can achieve their full potential and improve their quality of life. VHHP offers comprehensive care, including but not limited to medical treatments, mental health, gender health, and social services, to help end homelessness. VHHP operates clinics in shelters, on the street, in mobile units, and on farms to ensure that all sub-populations of homeless individuals have access to care. VHHP is part of Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (Hospital and Clinics), one of three public hospitals owned and operated by the County of Santa Clara.
