About the Clinic

Venice Family Clinic provides high quality comprehensive health care to families and individuals who might otherwise go without the care they need.


To improve the health of people and communities through accessible, quality care.


To provide quality primary health care to people in need.


Venice Family Clinic was started in 1970 by our founders Philip Rossman, MD and Mayer B. Davidson, MD. Back then, volunteer physicians provided basic medical care in a borrowed storefront dental office after normal business hours.

Today, with fourteen locations and an extensive street medicine program, the Clinic is proud to be a leading community health center in Los Angeles.

The Clinic continues to expand to best meet our community’s needs with an innovative, integrated approach that addresses the unique combination of clinical and social factors that impact our patients’ health. We offer primary and specialty care, behavioral health services, dental care, vision care and more—often all in one visit.


50 Years of Health

In 2020, Venice Family Clinic celebrated 50 years of working for health equity. The Clinic marked the milestone in multiple ways:

  • recognized 50 Visionaries who have positively impacted the health of our patients and our community
  • launched a virtual Health + Justice series to encourage conversation about pressing issues that impact our patients’ health
  • hosted a star-studded virtual celebration
  • invited the community to join us in a Week of Action.
