Community Health

UCLA in the Community

UCLA Health is more than just a collection of hospitals and clinics.

We are an engaged member of our broader community, and we take our responsibility for community service very seriously.

Whether it is our medical students providing basic healthcare to homeless on the streets of Hollywood, caring for service members injured in war, or our expert physicians and staff traveling to all parts of the globe to render aid, UCLA Health is about serving people with dignity and respect.
