Saban Community Clinic serves as a medical home for the underserved and those who are most vulnerable by providing comprehensive, dependable, and affordable quality health care in a caring environment. The Clinic’s legacy is rooted in a fundamental belief – health care is a right, not a privilege.
In 1967 the clinic (originally named The Los Angeles Free Clinic), opened its doors to provide medical and psychological services to low-income and uninsured individuals at no cost. The staff was made up entirely of volunteers and operated solely on donations.
Today the Clinic operates three health centers in Los Angeles County, providing more than 100,000 patient visits to more than 21,000 men, women and children each year. The Clinic remains committed to keeping its doors open to everyone who needs medical, dental, or behavioral health or social services, regardless of ability to pay.
Reflecting its new designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center in a new era in health care with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the Clinic was renamed Saban Community Clinic in 2013.
