  Director's Message

Mitchell H. Katz, M.D.

Welcome to the homepage of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services. Our health care system operates seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Each year, 700,000 unique patients seek care in one of our hospitals or clinics.

Public hospitals are special places and are there for us when we need them. They train a majority of new physicians, provide life-saving trauma and burn care, and serve the needs of society's most vulnerable. They push boundaries in treating illness and restore good health through a patient-centered focus.

I am proud of this organization and our historic mission to provide high quality medical care. The County-run health care system plays a vital role in improving health and making our lives, and our world, better.
