In early March Clinic Ole celebrated the completion of our expanded pediatric practice and honored Tala DeWynter with the Infant Room, by holding a ribbon cutting ceremony at its Pear Tree location in Napa. Nearly 75 members of the community, including elected officials, a representative from Senator Boxer’s office, and Clinic Ole staff and board members, gathered to take part in the celebration. The event honored Tala DeWynter with a dedication of the Infant and Family Room in her memory.
The Pediatric Initiative was launched in the summer of 2013 to create access for a growing pediatric patient population. Two new pediatricians and a pediatric nurse practitioner were hired, and the play area and infant room created a more comfortable environment for children and families.
The DeWynter Infant and Family Room is dedicated to the memory of Tala DeWynter, a leading force behind the development of Clinic Ole and president of the first Board of Directors for the health center. DeWynter was an influential member of the Hispanic community of Napa Valley and worked tirelessly with local farm workers, the medical community, and volunteers to establish Clinic Ole in 1972.
