Helping our community
Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Centers San Pedro and Torrance support several programs in the South Bay aimed at improving the health of our community. There are three categories of funding we provide to the community:
CHARITY CARE — Free or discounted medical care provided to patients who do not have health insurance or are unable to pay for all or part of their medical care due to limited income or financial hardship.
MEDI-CAL SHORTFALL — The difference between the cost of providing care and the amount received from Medi-Cal.
COMMUNITY BENEFIT SERVICES — Programs to address the identified health needs of the community. These programs include the Wellness and Activity Center, Vasek Polak Health Clinic, community-based diabetes and nutrition classes, the Partners for Healthy Kids mobile clinic, the Creating Opportunities for Physical Activity PE program in schools, and health insurance and CalFresh application assistance.
