August 2021 -- Providence Holy Cross Medical Center presented a $150,000 grant to the San Fernando Community Health Center (SFCHC) to provide state-of-the-art healthcare services, prevention, and education to patients in its under-served San Fernando Valley service area. SFCSC’s main campus is located at 732 Matt Street in the city of San Fernando. 

     SFCHC, a Federally Qualified Health Center, offers patient-focused care to individuals and families regardless of income or ability to pay. The funds will be used to develop an advanced case management model that engages, navigates, and links patients to primary care services in their primary language. SFCHC will also invest in expanding its care management team and developing their skills on complex population management software.

     “We are grateful for this opportunity to continue our legacy of serving as a trusted, patient-centered medical home for our community since 1924,” said SFCHC Chief Executive Officer Audrey Simons. “Our ultimate goal is to establish a trusting and informative relationship with clients and welcome them to a compassionate medical home. Our experience working with the most vulnerable members of our community teaches that communicating in a patient’s primary language, culture, and at their level of health literacy empowers them to make the best medical choices. “ For more information visit www.sfchchealthcenter.org
