The Pediatric Care CHDP Program at the CCCHC South Gate Location
At the CCCHC South Gate location, our Pediatric Care CHDP is a preventative program aimed to provide medical aid to low-income children in the state of California. This mainly comprises health assessments carried out periodically, as well as care coordination where families are assisted with scheduling appointment, arranging transportation, and availing treatment and diagnostic services. Assessments are handed out by local health departments, a few local school districts, community clinics enrolled private physicians, and managed care plans.
