Health Services for the Underserved
More than 10 percent of adults in North Orange County lack medical insurance and 34 percent lack dental insurance. The percentage is significantly higher in low income communities.
Over the past 25 years, St. Jude Medical Center has responded to this need by developing a mobile health clinic program in 1988, a children's dental clinic in 1999 and the St. Jude Neighborhood Health Center in 2006. In an effort to expand and sustain services, the medical center established a separate independent 501(c)(3) corporation in 2011 with the goal of being designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). This designation was achieved in November 2013. The medical center now has an affiliation agreement with the clinic and provides over $2.1 million annually to subsidize the needs of the uninsured at the clinic and over $7 million in charity care at the medical center.
