Wilmington Health Center and other DHS outpatient facilities are innovators in care and provide patient-centered services with a focus on disease prevention and wellness. Through its primary care medical home model, patients see the same provide on every visit and care is always coordinated.
The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS) is an integrated system of clinics and hospitals that offer you and your loved ones the care you need to stay well. This includes primary care (like check-ups and immunizations) as well as the specialty care you need to treat a serious illness or a chronic disease. Our goal is to be your medical home, a place where you have a team of health professionals who help guide you to the right care at the right place at the right time.
What services can I get at DHS?
DHS offers a full range of services depending on your needs. The best way to get care is to go to a DHS clinic near you and choose it as your medical home. When you choose a medical home, you will be able to see the same team of health professionals when you need care. They will have access to your medical records and help you to get the prescriptions and referrals you need. Whether you need primary, specialty or emergency care - all of your care is coordinated through your medical home.
Primary care services include routine, but important services such as check-ups, immunizations, wellness visits, prenatal care, and treatment for chronic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, or congestive heart failure. Primary care services are often provided by family practice or internal medicine physicians, but primary care is also provided by physician assistants, certified medical assistants, and nurses who have the proper training.
Primary care services at the Wilmington Health Center include:
Women's Health (OB/GYN)
Disease Diagnosis and Ongoing Treatment
Treatment for Chronic Illnesses
On the recommendation of your primary care medical home provider, you may be referred to a specialist, such as a cardiologist, urologist or dermatologist, for treatment when you have a serious medical condition. For example, if you have a heart condition, you might be referred to a cardiologist. For a foot problem, you may be referred to a podiatrist. These specialists work with your primary care medical home provider to manage your care and make sure you get the treatment you need.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Wilmington Family Health Center County Of Los Angeles website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2021
|Persons In Family Household
||Poverty Guideline Salary per year
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.
When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
