Family Health Care Centers of Greater Los Angeles

Bell Gardens, CA
$300,000
December 2014

Family Health Care Centers of Greater Los Angeles (FHCCGLA) has embarked on a three-phase capital project to expand and redesign its main facility, the Bell Gardens Family Medical Center.  The overall goal is to fully implement the patient-centered medical home service delivery model and enhance access to comprehensive and coordinated care.  In the first phase of the project, now completed, the administrative offices were moved to a newly acquired and renovated building next door and three new exam rooms were added to the clinical facility.  The second phase, which the W. M. Keck Foundation is supporting, will add nine exam rooms, enlarge the reception area and waiting room, optimize the nurse’s station, and create a new suite of provider offices.  Once complete, FHCCGLA will be better able to meet the increased demand for services as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and will increase the number of patients served from nearly 11,400 to 17,000 and visits from 41,800 to 57,600 by June 2016.  During the campaign’s third phase, the Center will retire the debt on the two buildings.
