South Bay Family Health Care (SBFHC) is a leading community clinic system and one of Los Angeles County’s largest safety net providers, offering high-quality, low-and-no cost health care in a warm and supportive environment to economically disadvantaged and uninsured populations throughout Los Angeles County’s South Bay and Harbor Gateway communities.
SBFHC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that provide more than 60,000 primary and preventive care visits annually to more than 17,000 uninsured and underinsured men, women, and children. For these underserved individuals, we serve as a medical home, partnering with them to manage their health, as well as steer them through the sometimes daunting health care system beyond primary care.
SBFHC’s rich history began in Manhattan Beach as a small storefront. In 1980 services were expanded to the Gardena clinic. The Redondo Beach clinic opened in 1999; during that same year, we began providing health services on the campus of Carson High School. Subsequently, the Dr. Claudia Hampton Clinic in Inglewood opened in 2003, and in July 2007, our OB/GYN satellite clinic was acquired, also located in Inglewood. Today, SBFHC offers comprehensive services at six clinic facilities with the latest addition, our second clinic in Redondo Beach, opening in July 2015, focusing on the needs of older adults (55+).
SBFHC is an FTCA deemed facility.
