QHC strives to provide universal access to primary healthcare, improving the well being of its patients and strengthening the entire community. At it’s six Federally Qualified Health Centers throughout Los Angeles County, teams of healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing primary, preventive, and acute care to all individuals, including adult and pediatric medical, dental, and vision care.
Along with these services, QHC offers a range of disease management programs to help patients manage and maintain their health. The Pediatric Asthma and Disease Management (PADM) program offers a comprehensive approach to managing childhood asthma, allergies, and other respiratory conditions.

The Clinical Pharmacy program, which is in partnership with USC School of Pharmacy, provides Clinical Pharmacists who work directly with patients to manage their medication therapy. The Care Coordination program includes a team of clinical staff who offer group and one-on-one patient education classes to help patients understand chronic diseases, including, but not limited to, insulin administration, blood glucose monitoring, how to use an inhaler, and appropriate health education models.
QueensCare Health Centers recently celebrated the Grand Opening of its new East 3rd Street health center. This facility is QHC’s first capital project and is a center of pride for the organization. The 25,000 square-foot, two-story building houses 36 exam rooms, which will provide a space for primary adult and pediatric care, optometry, and specialty services like OB/GYN, cardiology, and podiatry. The health center also houses eight dental operatories for adult and pediatric dentistry, an in-house pharmacy, and an education room for preventive care courses. At full-capacity, this health center will provide annual care across all life cycles to over 14,000 unduplicated patients. The two previous East Los Angeles health centers, which are merging into the new facility, saw just over 6,000 unduplicated patients annually, combined.
