NEVHC expanded once again to include healthcare services for HIV positive patients in 1991. Two years later, our School-Based division began providing healthcare services in Los Angeles.
Although the 1994 Northridge earthquake demolished our Corporate Administrative office, we continued to grow during the mid-1990s. In 1994, our HIV services outgrew its space, and relocated to a new and expanded HIV treatment program in Panorama City. During that same year our Homeless Health Center opened as a fully licensed clinic in North Hollywood. The next year, 1995, we found ourselves in the midst of the Public Private Partnership Program (PPP) with Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS), and NEVHC took over the operation of two county health centers: Canoga Park and Valencia.
In 1998, the PPP contract expanded to include our Pacoima and San Fernando health centers. During the same year, the new Family Health & Walk-in Center annex at the San Fernando Health Center was opened, followed by the Pediatric Health and WIC Center opening in Van Nuys.
Our first Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) was received in 1999. This gold standard certification makes a strong statement to the community about our organization’s efforts to provide the highest quality services and our continuous goal of improvement.
