Our Health California
When a critically ill or injured patient needs a hospital stay, family is usually close behind. Sometimes they must travel long distances to be near their loved one, but endless hours on the road, expensive hotel stays, and the stress of not always being nearby can get in the way.
Every day, a small army of women and men rise to help meet the needs of Californians experiencing homelessness. These are people who work at hospitals: social workers, case managers, nurses, doctors, and more. They are on the front lines of the ongoing fight to care for those with the greatest need – those who don’t know where they will sleep or when their next meal will be.
