Mission Statement

Our mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange by continually improving the health and quality of life of people in the communities we serve.

Background Statement

St. Jude Neighborhood Health Centers was formed in 2011 by St. Jude Medical Center whose clinic programs to serve the poor began in 1988 with a mobile prenatal clinic.  In 1989, a mobile pediatric clinic began service and in 1999 a mobile adult clinic.  Also in 1999, the Medical Center partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Buena Park to operate their dental clinic.   In 2006, the Medical Center opened the St. Jude Neighborhood Health Center in partnership with the City of Fullerton.  The clinic was opened in response to the request of low income residents who stated that they needed a clinic in their neighborhood.    The Mobile clinic services were reduced as fixed site clinics opened in La Habra, Fullerton and Buena Park.  The Medical Center formed the St. Jude Neighborhood Health Centers in order to ensure long-term sustainability of its services so that it could be eligible to apply for FQHC status.  This designation was received in November 2013. The affiliation with the Medical Center and with St. Jude Heritage Healthcare is of mutual benefit to all these organizations.  In May, 2015 the St. Joseph Hospital community clinics were merged under St. Jude Neighborhood Health Centers and an affiliation with St. Joseph Hospital was added.  The Board of Directors was expanded to include patients and community members representing their clinics.  In July 2018 La Amistad Family Health Center is moving to an expanded site.

Impact Statement

For CY2017, we provided 49,725 patient visits to 10,959 unique patients.  This included high-quality pediatric care for nearly 2,600 children, prenatal care to nearly 80 women, and approximately 5,500 dental visits.   
Goals for 2018/2019:
         Implement screening for social determinants of health
         Relocate our La Amistad Health Center to a larger facility in Orange to increase access to care
         Expand our Fullerton clinic adding six exam rooms to increase access to care
         Advocate for our patients' health and qualify of life.   

Needs Statement

Our most pressing needs are:
1)  Resources to expand access to care for more uninsured and underinsured individuals.  Estimated cost:  $650,000.
2)  Patient access to certain specialities for free consultation - ENT, Neurology, Urology. 
3)   Cost - partnership; volunteers
4)  More space
5)  Volunteer dentists.

CEO Statement


Board Chair Statement

St. Jude Neighborhood Health Centers is able to provide comprehensive medical, dental and mental health services to over 8,000 underserved persons annually in North and Central Orange County because of the support of our community, and as a result of our affiliation with St. Jude Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital and St. Jude Heritage HealthCare.   We were provided the opportunity to create and implement a plan to sustain and grow our services when the Medical Center established a separate 501 c 3 to pursue FQHC status.  We recognize that we need to be a provider of choice for those with MediCal and a provider that has access for the uninusured who will still be with us after health care reform.  Our mission calls on us to serve those who are most vulnerable in our communities with dignity, excellence and justice.    I am most impressed by the quality of clinic user and community board members who have taken on the governance of our organization.   Our Fullerton clinic was the vision of the low income residents in the neighborhood and now they are governing it.  This brings to full circle the direction to the Sisters of St. Joseph by their founder Fr. Medaille which was to go out into the community, find out what the concerns of the people were and work with them to solve the problems.  

Other Ways to Donate/Volunteer

Donations can be made by mailing a check.  In-kind donations of emergency assistance gift cards are most appreciated.   Volunteer opportunities are available for licensed physicians and dentists.
