Our primary care services are linked to major health plans and healthcare institutions to better serve individuals who require specialized care and empower them to make the best medical choices.

As Chief Executive Officer, I am very proud to lead our great team as we continue SFCHC’s nearly century-long legacy as a treasured health resource in the San Fernando Valley. We are deeply grateful to serve you and the community we love.
