L.A. Care Health Plan
FHCCGLA is fortunate to have received support from the L.A. Care Health Plan Community Benefits Program over the years. FHCCGLA patient census has consistently grown in recent years, and service area demand for services exceeds the current staffing. Currently, LA Care’s Provider Recruitment Program is helping support salary time for a Pediatrician to provide critical primary health care services to low-income populations in Los Angeles County, as well as to increase healthcare access. FHCCGLA’s Board of Directors, staff and patients are very grateful for the generosity and support of the LA Care Health Plan Community Benefits Program.
This project is funded in part by L.A. Care Health Plan and will benefit low-income and uninsured residents of Los Angeles County.
Family Health Centers of Greater Los Angeles (FHCCGLA) is collaborating with Kaiser Permanente (K.P.) as 1 of 6 participating FQHC organizations to provide medical students with a community-based experience through a required mandatory service-learning course featuring co-designed projects. FHCCGLA has sessions planned that started as of August 20, 2020, and on-going.
Vernon CommUNITY Fund
Family Health Centers of Greater Los Angeles (FHCCGLA) is grateful and proud to announce the news that we received a grant from the City of Vernon CommUNITY Fund to enhance equipment and patient services at our Maywood Family Medical Center location. Thanks to the generosity of the City of Vernon Community Fund, FHCCGLA was able to purchase a Patient Check-In kiosk and an Ultrasound machine for the Maywood clinic. The electronic patient kiosk will stream-line the check-in process and improve patient flow and capacity, as well as check patient health plan status and eligibility. The addition of the Ultrasound machine will enable FHCCGLA to provide more thorough perinatal care services for pregnant patients of the Maywood Family Medical Center, instead of them having to travel to another FHCCGLA clinic to receive these services. These equipment purchases will increase patient flow and capacity, and expand available perinatal services.
