Comprehensive Healthcare

QueensCare Health Centers provides a wide range of health services and programs for everyone in your family. At our five Federally Qualified Health Centers throughout Los Angeles County our 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.

  • Our fees are based on the patient’s ability to pay
  • We provide quality health care to all people regardless of insurance status or income level
  • We are staffed by highly competent health care professional teams
  • We are community controlled by patient majority boards of directors

The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into “what patients want it to be.” Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care.

We are community health centers with a mission to serve everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of your ability to pay or your insurance status. In many parts of California, our CaliforniaHealth+ centers may be the only provider of comprehensive primary and preventive health care services for you, your family, and your community.

1897
The first clinic was founded by the Society of El Hogar Feliz (Happy Home) to care for the abandoned and neglected children of Los Angeles.

1930s
The Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart made space for the small clinic in their new hospital, Queen of Angels.

1980s 
The Sisters moved the clinic to its present location adjacent to St. Anne’s Maternity Home in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles.

1994
For financial reasons, the Sisters transferred control of the Franciscan Clinic to Queen of Angels-Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center.

1998
The medical center was sold and its corporate name was changed to QueensCare. The Franciscan Clinic was combined with QueensCare’s other community clinics in the Wilshire District and Hollywood under the name Franciscan Clinics dba QueensCare Family Clinics.

2002
QueensCare turned over control of the Clinics to a newly appointed, independent, self-perpetuating board so that the Clinics could qualify as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).

2008
The Franciscan Clinics name was dropped and the corporate name was changed to QueensCare Family Clinics. Until now, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was known as Franciscan Clinics dba QueensCare Family Clinics.

2013
QueensCare Family Clinics corporate name changes to QueensCare Health Centers.

TODAY
QueensCare Health Centers continues to partner with QueensCare to provide healthcare services to the underserved and uninsured people of Los Angeles. The five health centers serve the needs of a growing number of medically uninsured, as well as Medi-Cal, Medicare and other insured patients regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or ability to pay.

    I have been working at QueensCare Health Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Welcoming environment.
    The mission of the organization is noble and important. I respect and appreciate what employees doing to serve the medical needs of the poor people in LA.
    Supports a good cause and the employees are passionate about the work.
    Management is new and feels like making a difference.
    Good employee picnic.

    Cons

    You need to be a self starter.
    You have to learn quickly.
    Limited flexibility around working hours, with different generations in the business having different opinions.
    Things are constantly being reviewed and I am starting to see a reasonable shift.
    Some of the best people are always running at maximum capacity.

    Communication between departments could be better, but probably not worse than other places I have worked.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent, communicate quick so employees don't hear things through grapevine. Feels like managers have troble trusting employees. Give more challenge to lower level employees. Be more flex with schedules , computers can be use anywhere now.
