For our patients, our community of South LA, and for all of Los Angeles. You can be a part of what we do every day.
The MLKCH Medical Foundation is operated as part of an integrated delivery system. It allows for seamless coordination of the health and management of our patients between our clinic and the main hospital facility.
Because of the standing of our hospital, our clinics can take advantage of the hospital’s resources. That means we can implement advanced technology to care for our patients, as well as offer the convenience of things like electronic medical records (EMR).
MLK Community Medical Foundation Evolution towards greater physician integration
Grow to 60 physicians
Provide health care services through an agreement with a multispecialty medical group of 26 or more physicians

More clinics. More care.
As a 501(c)(3) foundation, we can build more clinics to expand our reach of care to the communities we serve. In order to do this, we must
Conduct medical research and health education while providing care through 40 or more independent contractor physicians and surgeons, at least 2/3rds of who practice at the clinic full-time
Ensure that our physicians and surgeons represent 10 or more board-certified specialties
