CAPH - California Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems
California's public health care systems,
which are the core of the state's health care
safety net, delivering high quality care
to all in need and working to improve
the health of their patients and communities.
Though just 6% of all California hospitals statewide, public health care systems:
- Serve 2.85 million Californians each year
- Are located in 15 counties where 80% of all Californians reside
- Deliver 10 million outpatient visits per year
Since 1999, the California Health Care Safety Net Institute (SNI) has helped public health care systems develop and spread innovative programs to help improve the quality of patient care and care coordination, enhance efficiencies, and eliminate health care disparities.
