KCS Health Center is a community health clinic that exists to serve the underserved and marginalized populations of Buena Park and its neighbors. The clinic was originally founded in an established nonprofit called Korean Community Services, a social services agency that has made its mission to serve the Korean-American and Korean immigrant communities in Southern California for over forty years. As Korean Community Services became aware of a burgeoning need for access to culturally and linguistically competent healthcare, the organization embarked on a journey to provide for these needs.
As Korean Community Services delved deeper into this work, it realized that access to healthcare was an issue not just for the Korean community in Orange County, but there was also a significant needs to serve its neighbors. In 2016, KCS Health Center became designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center Look-alike, and thus began serving its city as a whole.
Today, KCS Health Center is a subsidiary of KCS, Inc and remains in close partnership with Korean Community Services. The clinic provides a comprehensive and integrated system of health care. With over a dozen providers on staff, this includes services such as family practice primary care, behavioral and mental health services, and healthcare navigation.
It is the mission of KCS Health Center to improve the health of low-income communities residing in Orange County through an integrated system of health care.
KCS Health Center provides the following services: Primary Care, Mental Health, Dental, Health Navigation, and Language Access.
