doc-with-child[su_expand more_icon=”icon: plus” less_icon=”icon: minus”]

Northeast Valley Health Corporation (NEVHC)

is one of the nation’s largest community health centers. We are a nonprofit organization focused on preventing and managing chronic health problems. While our patients are united by their experience of medical need, they come from every walk of life and background. Regardless of one’s ability to pay, we provide medical care for children, adults, families, the homeless, students attending schools deemed high-risk, adults with HIV and Hepatitis C, and other vulnerable residents in our service area.

NEVHC serves people of all languages, cultures and backgrounds.  Services are provided to patients in their preferred language.  Many of our employees are bilingual in English and Spanish.  For all other languages, employees are able to find a bilingual staff member or a qualified interpreter (at no cost to the patient).

NEVHC also works to provide care that is culturally appropriate.  Our employees aim to provide care that is sensitive to each patient’s culture, including health beliefs and practices.  All reasonable efforts to accommodate patients with special needs are made at each health center.  If patients have any questions about our services and our ability to accommodate their special situation, they should call the health center closest to them and talk to someone in the Business Office.

We invite you to learn more about NEVHC – our past, our present and those who are leading us into the future to provide even greater care to those in need.

NEVHC History

NEVHC History


The 1970’s

The 1970s In 1971, NEVHC was incorporated as a nonprofit public benefit corporation in the State of California. The San Fernando Health Center was opened and officially dedicated in 1973 by U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy. Our second healthcare site, the Pacoima Health Center, opened in 1975, and our Substance Abuse program began in 1977.  


The 1980’s

The year 1987 was an exciting and momentous time for NEVHC. First, we collaborated with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to provide healthcare services on the campus of San Fernando High School. The school-based Teen Health Center received national recognition as a “Models That Work” program in Washington, DC. During that same year, NEVHC became the sponsoring agency for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Supplemental Nutrition Program in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. In 1988, NEVHC became the lead agency for the Collaborative Homeless Health Care project, which at the time was a..Read more



NEVHC expanded once again to include healthcare services for HIV positive patients in 1991. Two years later, our School-Based division began providing healthcare services in Los Angeles. Although the 1994 Northridge earthquake demolished our Corporate Administrative office, we continued to grow during the mid-1990s. In 1994, our HIV services outgrew its space, and relocated to a new and expanded HIV treatment program in Panorama City. During that same year our Homeless Health Center opened as a fully licensed clinic in North Hollywood. The next year, 1995, we found ourselves in the midst of the Public Private Partnership Program (PPP) with..Read more


A New Century-2000

The first half of the new decade was a busy one for some of our programs benefiting children. A health center on the campus of Los Angeles Mission College in Sylmar opened in 2000. In 2001, the NEVHC Maclay Health Center for Children opened on the campus of Maclay Middle School in Pacoima. The Reach Out and Read literacy program was launched at four of our primary care sites in 2003. In 2004, NEVHC received the “Mission Impact Award” from the Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County (CCALAC). In 2005, NEVHC received great news when the L.A. County Board..Read more


Our Future-2010 and Beyond

NEVHC has long recognized the need for expanded community health center access in the Santa Clarita Valley. In the summer of 2010, NEVHC opened a new health center in Santa Clarita, which provides primary health services and includes a co-located WIC center. In 2010, NEVHC opened the Santa Clarita Health Center to expand access to residents of the Santa Clarita Valley. In 2011, NEVHC received The Joint Commission accreditation for its health care services. In 2012, NEVHC opened the Rainbow Dental Center in the Santa Clarita Valley to improve access to dental care for SCV resedents.
