On June 10, 2014, the Imperial County Local Health Authority (LHA) was established by Ordinance pursuant to California Welfare & Institutions Code Section 14087.38.
The LHA Commission is the governing body of the LHA. The LHA Commission consists of thirteen voting members that represent different sectors of the health system, the public, Medi-Cal beneficiaries, and businesses as outlined in LHA Establishing Ordinance. The Commission began meeting in November 2014.
We are working with community residents and stakeholders in both the public and private sectors to:
- advance opportunities for improved health and access to comprehensive health care services;
- promote the long-term viability of safety net providers;
- increase prevention, education, and early intervention services; and
- partner with Medi-Cal managed care plans to monitor and improve the local healthcare system.
Healthy Community, Healthy Residents
