South Bay Family Health Care was founded in 1969 as a small storefront in Manhattan Beach. Since those early days as a free clinic, we have expanded strategically in Redondo Beach, Gardena, Carson and Inglewood, in order to meet the needs of people throughout the South Bay and Harbor Gateway.
Our Overarching Goal
To ensure that access to health care is accessible through seven key focus areas, aimed at alleviating social determinants of health by improving health outcomes for the low-income, underserved individuals we serve. Access to Health (primary medical care, chronic disease management, and dental care); Prevention (health and nutrition education, community outreach, community health screenings, and immunizations); Healthy Beginnings (prenatal care, CenteringPregnancy™, CenteringParenting™, and pediatric care); Reproductive Health (full range of birth control options, education regarding sexuality, pregnancy, and STD’s); Adolescent Health (school-based health center, teen clinic, and classroom health education); Mental Health & Wellness (integrated behavioral health and substance use prevention and treatment); Care Coordination/Ancillary and Enabling Services (emergency room discharge coordination, integrated model of care for chronically-ill patients, on-site dispensary, and clinical laboratories).
