Towards a healthier South LA
Part of MLK Community Healthcare (MLKCH), the MLK Community Health Foundation (MLKCHF) is dedicated to securing private support for MLKCH’s work across the broad continuum of care, from acute to community wellness and prevention. The MLKCH family includes a state-of-the-art hospital, the MLK Community Medical Group and its outpatient clinics, and population and community health programs—all delivering quality and innovation in healthcare to the 1.3 million residents of South LA.
Like MLKCH, the foundation is guided by a belief that access to quality care is an act of social justice. Our partners are community, civic and philanthropic leaders who have come together across Los Angeles and the nation to support our work in health equity. Their partnership includes support of a multi-specialty nonprofit medical group, helping to close a physician gap of 1,200 doctors in South LA, expanded diagnostic and treatment services, mobile health and telemedicine programs, integrated behavioral health, home health, a street medicine program for our unhoused patients, best-in-class maternity services, and a nurse residency and fellowship program.
We’re telling a new story of health in South LA—one in which patients can access a system of care similar to that found in more affluent communities. A story of hope and healing.
