Venice Family Clinic
Venice Family Clinic, the largest free clinic in the nation, providing free, quality health care to more than 25,000 patients a year – offering primary medical, dental, vision and behavioral health services to patients at twelve sites in Venice, Santa Monica, Mar Vista, Inglewood and Culver City.
Venice Family Clinic is affiliated with UCLA, with many of its physicians (faculty members, resident physicians, and medical students) from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, who volunteer 4,700 hours annually. UCLA hospitals also donate radiology, laboratory, surgical, emergency and other clinical services. The clinic also works to develop the next generation of providers, serving as a training site for some 40 programs in medicine, mental health, social work, nursing, pharmacy, public health, health administration and integrative medicine.
Medical professionals from Venice Family Clinic operate nine street medicine teams working with the chronic homeless throughout Los Angeles. Their Homeless Multidisciplinary Street Team treats illnesses and physical conditions that without immediate care could become more serious and even life-threatening.
