CONNECTING COMMUNITIES THROUGH HEALTH

UMMA Community Clinic has been the medical home to over 25,000 adults and children living in South Los Angeles. For our patients, UMMA is possibly the only source of health care, and without us, many conditions would go undiagnosed or untreated.

UMMA operates two facilities in the South Los Angeles area, our flagship clinic on Florence Ave, celebrating its 20th year of operations in 2016, and our school-based health center the Fremont Wellness Center on the campus of the Los Angeles Unified School District’s John C. Fremont High School.

UMMA emphasizes the commitment to quality and safety for our patients by providing care based on evidence-based clinical guidelines; demonstrated by our Program Level 2 certification as a Patient Centered Medical Home from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Our primary care providers are supported through a care team-based approach that includes medical assistants, a licensed vocational nurse/case manager, referral coordinators, a licensed clinical social worker, health educators, and a contracted pharmacy. We are an electronic medical records facility that utilizes eClinicalWorks. UMMA is a Medicaid and Medicare provider and a member of the Health Care LA IPA. Our patients reflect the community we serve: 66% Hispanic and 25% African American, 51% of patients are best served in a language other than English, and 74%, are at 100% or below the Federal Poverty Level.

Los Angeles has something for everyone, with 75 miles of sunny coastline, a flourishing Downtown, lifestyle playgrounds for the rich and famous, acclaimed restaurants, trend-setting art and fashion scenes, and internationally flavored neighborhoods. It is the largest city in California and the second-largest urban area in the nation. It is located in the southern part of the state on the Pacific Ocean and is the seat of Los Angeles County. Geographically, it extends more than 40 mi from the mountains to the sea.

The city's phenomenal growth was brought about by its equable climate, which attracted people and industry from all parts of the nation; the development of its citrus-fruit industry; the discovery of oil in the area during the early 1890s; the development of its man-made harbor—its port is one of the busiest in the United States—and the growth of the motion picture industry in the early 20th century. Today, Hollywood is a part of Los Angeles. Los Angeles is a major hub of shipping, manufacturing, industry, and finance, and is world-renowned in the entertainment and communications fields. It is a favorite vacation destination and attracts millions of tourists to the area each year from all over the world. Apart from the movie studios and other landmarks associated with the movie industry, points of interest include the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the La Brea Tar Pits (famous for Ice Age fossils), Disneyland (Anaheim), and the Santa Anita and Hollywood racetracks.
