In February 2018, HASC member hospitals and AllHealth, HASC’s wholly owned subsidiary, committed $1 million to CLC over two years. This initial investment allowed CLC to hire an Executive Director and a Project Manager in July 2018 and to contract with subject matter experts to help develop priority areas and community health improvement initiatives. This two-year investment by hospitals and health systems demonstrated a significant willingness to participate in and financially support CLC and was strongly encouraged by foundation partners. CLC has received additional investments from AllHealth totaling $600,000 and grants and sponsorships totaling over $4M from Blue Shield of California Foundation, Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan, California Health Care Foundation, Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare, First 5 LA, Health Net, The California Endowment and UniHealth Foundation.
