Cedars-Sinai's mobile medical clinics receive $500,000 grant from California Community Foundation
Date:5/6/2011

LOS ANGELES (May 5, 2011) - Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has received a $500,000 grant from the California Community Foundation (CCF) that will help support the hospital's COACH for Kids and Their Families program. Over a two-year period, the grant will help fund primary healthcare and case management services by COACH for Kids to vulnerable children in underserved communities in Inglewood, Centinela Valley, and the South Los Angeles neighborhoods of Watts and Compton.

"Promoting and improving the health and quality of life of children and adults, particularly those without adequate health insurance, has always been part of the mission of the California Community Foundation in Los Angeles," said President and CEO Antonia Hernndez. "Access to health care is also a particular objective of our Centinela Medical Care Fund, from which this grant is being made." The grant marks the 11th year Cedars-Sinai's mobile medical clinics have received funding from the community foundation.

A program of Cedars-Sinai's Maxine Dunitz Children's Health Center, and staffed by healthcare professionals, COACH for Kids' fully-equipped mobile medical clinics bring high-quality, no-cost primary healthcare and case management services where they are needed most. In 2010, COACH for Kids provided health services to more than 10,500 individuals at elementary and middle schools, community centers, family homeless shelters and public housing developments in economically-disadvantaged neighborhoods. Continuity of care is ensured with services provided on a regular basis, including preventive care, such as immunizations and screenings, as well as diagnosis and treatment of acute illnesses.

"This generous grant from the California Community Foundation will make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children who will receive vital healthcare services through our COACH for Kids program," said Thomas M. Priselac, president and CEO of Cedars-Sinai Medical Cent
