About Los Angeles Community Hospital

One Mission. One Team. One You.

Los Angeles Community Hospital has been taking care of generations of east Los Angeles families. Having a strong presence in our community has been critical to our success since our inception, along with offering quality, compassionate healthcare accessible to everybody. Most of our doctors, nurses and other employees live in the community, creating a culture of neighbors taking care of neighbors.

We have changed with our community—both in the way we deliver medical care and by reaching beyond the walls of our hospital. We work closely with community members to help meet their most important needs.
