Mobile Clinic Sponsored by Providence and Health Net Picks Up Where RAM Leaves Off; Serves Hundreds of Uninsured Valley Patients

Health Net:

What:

A partnership between Providence Health & Services and the Health Net Foundation to provide mobile health services to the uninsured at nine locations in the East San Fernando Valley. According to a 2006 study by the California HealthCare Foundation, the treatment of chronic disease, such as diabetes, accounts for 80 percent of our nation’s total health care bill. This program seeks to improve community health by delivering ongoing health care services and education to uninsured patients with chronic illnesses. In collaboration with the City and County of Los Angeles, the program also focuses on preventive health care. On Monday, the Health Net Foundation will announce a major financial contribution to support the program.
