The California Endowment has retained
National Health Foundation (NHF) to serve as the lead organization to assist in
the information gathering and analysis of how South Los Angeles can take
advantage of the federal Affordable Care Act to advance improved health and
development of integrated health delivery in the community. One of the first
tasks NHF will undertake is to interview stakeholders with a vested interest in
seeing that a successful coordinated health care delivery system designed to
serve the residents of South Los Angeles is created. You have been identified as
one of the key individuals whose thoughts and suggestions will be invaluable to
the planning effort. After the receipt of this letter you will be contacted by a
staff member of NHF to schedule an interview. Information collected during the
interview process will be strictly confidential and no individual results will
Our primary objective is to assure that while
multiple regional efforts may unfold between now and 2014, The California
Endowment and key stakeholders keep our eyes on the prize for South Los Angeles:
improved access, improved health
outcomes, and a high quality health system for the community.
In addition, please be aware that we
will keep Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and County officials apprised of our
work and findings on this front.
If you have any questions about this project,
please feel free to contact me or Dr. Beatriz Solis at The California Endowment
(213) 928-8736. We want to personally
thank you in advance for helping us with this most important endeavor.
