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.

Vision

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

Mission

To provide quality primary health care to people in need.

History

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

Today, with twelve locations and a robust 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.

 

In 2018, we provided comprehensive primary care to more than 27,000 men, women and children
