Winnetka S. Mark Taper Center for a Healthy Community provides services to the growing underserved population in the West San Fernando Valley.
The vast majority of these patients have no other healthcare options in the local community, with the vast majority of the individuals living below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.
Winnetka is a neighborhood in the west-central San Fernando Valley in the city of Los Angeles. It is a highly diverse area, both for the city and for Los Angeles County, with a relatively large percentage of Hispanic and Asian people.
Winnetka was founded in 1922 as a small farming community. Today there are six public and four private schools in the area, a recreation center, two pocket parks and a city-operated child-care center.
