VISTA — On Oct. 23, Kelly Motadel, MD, MPH received the San Diego Business Journal’s Women Who Mean Business award. This award honors a San Diego woman who demonstrates exemplary excellence in business and community. Motadel is the Medical Director at Vista Community Clinic, a nonprofit provider of primary care to more than 51,000 patients each year in five clinic sites across North County. The clinic serves primarily low-income and uninsured individuals and families. In her role as medical director, Motadel has led organization-wide quality improvement initiatives and developed a staff of physicians and nurse practitioners that is seven times more diverse than the national average.
In addition to this, Motadel serves on the Vista Community Clinic Clinician Leadership Cabinet, is a past president of San Diego Council of Community Clinic’s Physician’s Council, and is active in the community, speaking to and mentoring young women and aspiring healthcare professionals.
Instead of a lucrative private practice, Motadel has dedicated her career to elevating the quality of services provided at community clinics throughout the San Diego region and to making North County a healthier place to live and work for everyone.
