Part of the Adventist Health System, White Memorial Medical Center (WMMC) was established in 1913 as a training site for medical students. For over 100 years, the medical center has been serving our community with a passion for excellence, a spirit of Christian service and a commitment to medical education. A full-service 353-bed non-profit, faith-based, teaching hospital we provide health care services to more than two million residents living throughout eastern Los Angeles. White Memorial’s physicians are some of finest physicians in Los Angeles whose credentials include pioneering research, teaching, ivy-league education and a commitment to caring and compassion care. WMMC is dedicated to providing high-quality care to all its patients and designing programs to match the specific health care needs of a community whose residents are predominantly Latino. Such programs include Latino-focused in-language programs and education, including Spanish bilingual doctors and nurses. The state-of-the art facility continues to grow opening up new service lines and offering innovative specialty services to a historically underserved population. The exceptional people that work for our hospital are driven by a unique sense of family and culture of loyalty, trust and commitment.

“We want women to get the care they need, when they need it!  Many times women put off going to the doctor for routine women’s health exams or a mammogram because of the cost.  Thanks to this grant from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, there is a nurse navigator that women can trust to help make sure they can get the care they need.  The nurse navigator works closely with Mad River Community Hospital to provide free mammograms for women who are uninsured or underinsured over age 40.  These resources, collectively, are vitally important to improve the well-being of low-income, underserved women in our rural community.  ‘The sum of the parts is equal to more than the sum of the total.'” – Rose Gale-Zoellick, Executive Director
