The Achievable Health Center is a state-licensed and Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), which opened in 2013 to meet the unique and evolving healthcare needs of traditionally underserved Los Angeles-area individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.  The primary goals of the Achievable Health Center are to: (1) Implement a patient-centered medical home for children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families living in LA County; (2) Improve patients’ quality of care and access to primary and specialty health services; and (3) Improve the health status of patients.  Additionally, the Achievable Health Center aims to serve as model for other clinics statewide.  Patients have access to a full range of primary health care services, as well as in-house pediatric neurology and mental health services, and access to a vast specialty care referral network.  Extensive care coordination, enrollment and eligibility services, health education and extended visits will be offered.  W. M. Keck Foundation support during the clinic’s start-up phase is targeted to providing care for pediatric patients.  By the end of 2016, the Achievable Health Center expects to build its patient base to serve over 2,000 individuals and demonstrate the model’s sustainability.
