South LA Healthcare Leadership Roundtable
In late 2008, CHC convened a Roundtable of executives from South LA clinics and hospitals, physician networks and health policy groups to develop short- and long-term initiatives to create an integrated system of healthcare for South LA. The Roundtable grew from a collaborative effort on SB 474, the South LA preservation fund, which funded a $5 million clinic-hospital partnership by the county and demonstrated the benefits of working together from a regional perspective. The Roundtable is a means for thinking proactively about the pressures on the healthcare system.
The Roundtable has identified short- and long-term policy strategies for strengthening the safety net infrastructure of South Los Angeles. Its focus currently is on developing an initiative to move towards integration of healthcare services in South LA.
