Saban Community Clinic started in 1967 as the Los Angeles Free Clinic. Volunteers provided all services and private donations allowed it to remain free of charge. However, in 2012, we ceased being a “free” clinic in order to meet the growing needs of our community and became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). This change has allowed us to expand services and provide affordable, comprehensive medical, dental, behavioral health, and pharmacy services to our four locations. Plus, access to social services to a wider range of patients.
We accept various insurance plans and have a sliding fee scale based on income. We won’t turn anyone away, regardless of their ability to pay, and thanks to private donors and government funding, we subsidize millions of dollars in care for patients every year. While a lot has changed over the past 50 years, our founding belief remains the same: healthcare is a right, not a privilege. We serve all patients, regardless of their health coverage status or ability to pay. We offer many options to make quality care affordable.
