Citrus Valley Health Partners

About the San Gabriel Valley

Citrus Valley Health Partners is proud to serve the nearly one million residents living in this region as one of its largest health care providers.

Named after the river that flows through it, the San Gabriel Valley is one of the most ethnically diverse regions in the country.

According to a 2014 report by the San Gabriel Valley Economic Partnership, Hispanics/Latinos make up the largest ethnic group with a total population of nearly 683,000. Asians are the next largest ethnic group in the San Gabriel Valley with a total population of over 400,000 people. Whites made up the third largest group in the Valley with a population over 330,000, followed by African Americans (52,000 persons).

The blending of such diverse populations has resulted in an eclectic mix of culture, food and traditions.

The hospitals and hospice of Citrus Valley Health Partners are located in the cities of West Covina, Covina and Glendora. Each community is about 25 minutes east of downtown of Los Angeles and within ideal driving distance to the mountains, beaches, desert and major airports.

The area is also home to the indoor shopping mall Plaza West Covina, several restaurant and entertainment centers and both public and private golf courses. Other cultural attractions and destinations nearby (and less than an hour’s drive away) include: the Fairplex in Pomona, Paseo Colorado in Pasadena, the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia and Disneyland in Anaheim.

About East Valley Community Health Center

The residency family medicine continuity practice is established through collaboration between Citrus Valley Health Partners and East Valley Community Health Center, a federally qualified health center and the medical home to thousands of individuals and families in the East San Gabriel and Pomona Valleys.

East Valley Community Health Center (EVCHC) utilizes the Patient Centered Medical Home practice model. This model or philosophy of primary care is patient centered, comprehensive, team based, coordinated, accessible, and focused on quality and safety.

Patients at EVCHC are among the most vulnerable in our communities. They present with complex socioeconomic, medical, and mental health problems.
Limited access to regular health care and poor health literacy compound the challenges of caring for these individuals and families.

Progressive presence and activity in the continuity practice is at the center of family medicine education. Family medicine residents will grow their patient panels, and see patients as part of a care team. The resident, MA, RN case coordinator, and referral coordinator comprise the immediate team. The expanded care team includes educators, social workers, behavioralists, and pharmacists.

Professionalism is the foundation upon which all other competencies are based. Professionalism requires an ongoing process of self-evaluation, humility, and self-improvement. We expect residents to be honest, respectful, compassionate team members and clinicians. Our vision is to graduate highly competent family physicians, and generous, effective collaborators who place the best interests of the patient at the center of everything they do.
