COVID-19: Mariposa is here to serve you during this difficult time. Find out how.

Welcome to Mariposa Community Health Center

Helping to maintain the good health and happy lives of Santa Cruz County residents is the primary purpose of the Mariposa Community Health Center. Since our founding in 1980 we have become the largest and most comprehensive provider of medical, dental, disease prevention and health promotion services in SE Arizona. Our four locations in Nogales, Rio Rico, Tubac and Patagonia offer a “one stop wellness” model of integrated care that recognizes and responds to the whole person from physical to social to psychological needs. Our services include adult/internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, dentistry, behavioral health and a full-service pharmacy. Our community outreach stems from our Community Health Services Department (formerly Platicamos Salud), which includes an entire building devoted to WIC for Women, Infants and Children. For a family of one or a family of many, Mariposa is here for you. For appointments in Nogales, Patagonia, Rio Rico and Tubac, call (520) 281-1550.


Mariposa is happy to announce that Telemedicine visits are now available with all of our providers! It’s simple, schedule an appointment, and your provider will call you at the scheduled time to listen to and address your health care needs! This is a great way to keep up with your health in this time of crisis. To schedule an appointment please call 520-281-1550.
