For nearly 50 years, Northeast Valley Health Corporation (NEVHC) has provided high-quality medical, dental and behavioral health services to medically underserved communities in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. We continue to carry on the mission established in 1971 by a group of community leaders who founded NEVHC to provide a dependable healthcare resource for residents of the San Fernando Valley who may have otherwise been unable to afford health services. Their vision for a healthier community continues to thrive nearly 50 years later with 17 health centers and 12 Women, Infants and Children (WIC) sites in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. Annually, more than 70,000 patients are served at the health centers and an additional nearly 39,000 at the WIC site.
Throughout the pandemic, NEVHC has continued to lead patients and community members towards optimal health by providing robust COVID-19 testing services and vaccination, implementing a drive-thru model of care, offering telehealth services and organizing food drive events where almost 23,000 pounds of food were distributed in 2020. Northeast Valley also proactively connects patients to social and economic support services such as access to nutritious foods, housing and transportation to address systemic barriers that impact patient health outcomes.
The mission of Northeast Valley Health Corporation is to provide quality, safe and comprehensive health care to the medically underserved residents of Los Angeles County, particularly in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, in a manner that is sensitive to the economic, social, cultural and linguistic needs of the community.
