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.

On average, California’s community safety net hospitals provide 87% of their care to low-income and uninsured Californians.

These core safety net hospitals provide: 

  • One-third of all inpatient care to Medi-Cal patients statewide
  • 67% of all Medi-Cal mental health inpatient care
  • 57% of all safety net hospital emergency medical care
