  • Mission:
  • Asian Pacific Health Care Venture, Inc. (APHCV) is a non-profit community health center whose mission is to advocate for and provide quality health care services to all persons in a culturally competent manner. We offer service with a particular focus on low-income families and underserved Asians and Pacific Islanders. We also offer programs of health education and community economic development within our catchment area as well as other regions in Los Angeles County. Among APHCV’s many objectives are (1) to deliver holistic, quality and effective community health care services that meet the needs of all people; (2) to create and provide an environment where individuals of all ages as well as families feel safe and comfortable in accessing quality, linguistically, and culturally competent care to improve their health and well being; and (3) to promote leadership, self-help, and empowerment of its clients so they can prevent illness and better access health care services.

  • Overview:
  • APHCV serves all members of the community with a special focus on underserved, low income Asian and Latino populations, the fastest growing populations in our service area. APHCV currently operates three sites: the Los Feliz Health Center, John Marshall High School (JMHS) Health Center, and Belmont Health Services. These sites are located in Los Angeles County Service Planning Area (SPA) 4 which includes the Hollywood, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Mid-Wilshire areas of Los Angeles County. The John Marshall High School Health Center is a school-based health center that provides health care services to the students of JMHS 21 hours a week. APHCV’s Belmont Health Services is a temporary health center currently open 38 hours a week, providing family planning, preventive health care, immunizations, and sports physicals to students of Belmont High School and members of the community. Belmont Health Services will transition into the Belmont Wellness Center, which APHCV is constructing in collaboration with Belmont High School and the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The Belmont Wellness Center will be a permanent health and wellness center on the campus of Belmont High School and is expected to open fall 2012. Most of APHCV’s patients reside in SPA 4, however a growing number of patients commute from SPA 3, which includes San Gabriel, Monterey Park, Rosemead and El Monte, and other nearby cities. These patients are willing to travel long distances to APHCV’s Los Feliz Health Center for its diverse language capacity and affordable health care and services. To provide easier access to culturally and linguistically competent health care for APHCV’s patients and other community members in SPA 3, APHCV recently opened the new El Monte/Rosemead Health Center in Rosemead in March 2012.

    APHCV provides services to more than 12,400 patients annually, 72% of whom are uninsured and 85% of whom have annual incomes at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. APHCV delivers full lifecycle health care services including pediatric, prenatal, adolescent, adult and geriatric care, family planning, integrated mental health, and HIV testing and counseling. APHCV provides bilingual and bicultural health care support: translation, interpretation, and ethnic specific health education in ten Asian languages including Bengali, Cantonese, Indonesian, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Mandarin, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese, in addition to English and Spanish. APHCV has a wide range of health education and outreach services targeting all age groups to ensure communities have access to resources to maintain health and wellbeing. At the Los Feliz Health Center, APHCV has a full scale dispensary where 400 prescriptions are filled daily. Staff in the dispensary assists patients to obtain subsidized medications through patient assistance programs. APHCV provides various enabling services including health insurance enrollment, food stamp application assistance, health education, parenting classes, and referrals to social and legal services. APHCV also provides on-site activities such as diabetes support groups, senior yoga and dance classes, and youth hip hop classes.

  • History:
  • Asian Pacific Health Care Venture, Inc. (APHCV) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community health center established in 1986. After becoming an independent nonprofit corporation in 1987, APHCV obtained a Federal 330 grant from the Federal Bureau of Primary Health Care to begin providing primary care services through subcontracted clinics. In addition to its Primary Care Program, APHCV coordinated collaborative projects with other Asian and Pacific Islander organizations to assess, plan and provide culturally competent health education programs on topics such as family planning, hepatitis, tuberculosis, lead poisoning, tobacco prevention, youth empowerment, and HIV/AIDS. In June 1997, APHCV established its first Community Health Center and began providing direct clinical and education services targeting low-income, uninsured and monolingual Asians in the Hollywood/Los Feliz/Silverlake areas of Los Angeles, in particular, Los Angeles County Service Planning Area (SPA) 4. In June 1999, APHCV successfully completed a capital campaign to purchase the building it had been leasing. In 2001, APHCV completed renovations of the building resulting in the opening of a dispensary and full utilization of the 23 exam rooms on both floors. In April of that year, APHCV opened a school based health center on the campus of John Marshall High School gradually increasing its hours to 24 hours per week. In early 2009, APHCV received funding to expand its medical capacity at the Los Feliz Health Center adding an additional five exam rooms. In August 2009, APHCV opened Belmont Health Services, a mobile health center, at Belmont High School, to provide health care services to students as well as residents in and around Belmont High School. Both the John Marshall High School Health Center and Belmont Health Services provide confidential, low cost and free services to the students of both high schools.
