Every Dignity Health hospital conducts a community health assessment and identifies strategic priorities based on this assessment. You can view our 2013 Health Needs Assessment report here. At California Hospital, we fulfill our mission by investing in community outreach and educational programs, participating in advocacy efforts, and establishing partnerships in the community to improve health.
We have a very robust Community Benefit Department at our hospital. Each year, California Hospital impacts the lives of individuals through wellness exams, diagnosis, state-of-the-art research and medical treatments, community events, educational programs, and other services.

Last year, California Hospital Medical Center provided over $101 million in community benefits.
To better meet the needs of our community under one roof, California Hospital recently opened a free standing, state-of-the-art facility one block from the hospital, Hope Street Family Center.
Hope Street Family Center is a community benefit program of California Hospital Medical Center that provides in-home and on-site educational, health wellness, behavioral health, developmental, and social services, that support children and families.
