Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas
The work of L.A. Care matters. For two decades, L.A. Care has significantly strengthened the safety net in Los Angeles County by developing new programs through innovative partnerships designed to provide health coverage to vulnerable populations and to support the safety net.
As chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, I joined L.A. Care Health Plan’s Board of Governors in February 2017. For years, we have partnered on Care Harbor, an annual mega-clinic that provides free healthcare to thousands of underserved individuals. On health policy, I oversaw the construction of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital and a network of cutting-edge health care facilities, encouraging an integrated approach to wellness.
