We deliver world-class care

We deliver exceptional care, with patients benefiting from our position as a leading academic medical center. Our health system encompasses two private acute-care hospitals, two community hospitals, and an array of outpatient facilities and surgical centers across the region. Our faculty provide quality medical, pharmacy, and dental care, as well as occupational therapy, physical therapy, and mental health services to patients.

Our providers are there for those in need

In addition to our own practices, our providers deliver high-quality care in safety net practices and clinics. They include services at Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center, the hub of the county’s health care system that serves 10 million residents. Practitioners also care for kids and teens at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, one of the top 10 pediatric hospitals in the nation.

We engage with the community to build a healthier L.A.

We’re committed to being a hub for partnerships. We empower community members to monitor heat and air pollution. Our students give screenings for diabetes and other diseases at health fairs. During the pandemic, our pharmacists administered half of all vaccines at county-run mass vaccination clinics. We also provide food and offer dental care to thousands of children who need it. Your support to these programs can touch countless Southern Californians.
