Mission To provide comprehensive, high quality, cost-effective health care in an educational and supportive environment that empowers patients to take an assertive role in caring for their well-being through all stages of life.
Who We Are Westside Family Health Center is a non-profit community health center providing a wide range of low-cost or no-cost health care services. Founded in 1974 by a small group of dedicated community members and mid-level clinicians, the Women’s Health Care Project opened its doors and has since evolved with the needs of the community to Westside Family Health Center.
The People We Serve We serve low-income men, women, children, and the uninsured population. WFHC provides service regardless of one’s ability to pay. The majority of our clients live in the surrounding Westside communities of Santa Monica, Venice, Mar Vista, Palms, Culver City and West Los Angeles. In 2009, we saw8722 patients with 27,114 visits
