Who We Are & Who We Serve

Community safety net hospitals are integral to California’s hospital safety net. PEACH member hospitals are core safety net providers located in underserved communities throughout California, including San Francisco, Fresno, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties, as well as major rural areas.

Community safety net hospitals provide an average of 89% of their care to low-income Medi-Cal, Medicare and uninsured patients.

California’s community safety net hospitals also provide: 

  • Nearly half (49%) of all Medi-Cal safety net hospital care
  • 66% of all Medi-Cal inpatient mental health care
  • 57% of all safety net hospital emergency care
  • 35% of care to Dual Eligible (Medi-Cal/Medicare) Californians
