Community Benefit

St. Francis Medical Center is dedicated to providing vital health care services to the community of Southeast Los Angeles. Every three years, we complete a Community Health Needs Assessment to identify the health care needs of adults, children, and families living in our service area. We use the data to develop our Community Benefit programs that address residents’ priority needs and the barriers to health and wellness. Our annual Community Benefit Report summarizes the health and wellness programs we provide in direct response to the needs that are identified.

Through St. Francis Medical Center’s Community Benefit programs, we strive to:

  • Nurture Healthy Children and Families
  • Foster Self-sufficiency
  • Enhance Individual & Community Well-being

It is through the vision and values we embrace, our health care team of physicians, nurses, and staff, and community partners that we are building healthier communities and helping to put within everyone’s reach, health, wellness, and wholeness.

We value your input and questions on our Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Strategies. Please send written comments to Linda Woo at
