PASADENA HEALTH CENTER
A Response to the Growing Healthcare Needs in the Pasadena Community
Dr. Ron Cookston with Gateway to Care approached the Pasadena community about the need that existed for indigent and underserved patients who were not receiving the quality treatment that they needed.
It became clear that a separate non-profit health care organization was needed to focus primarily on patient care and to integrate community-based services into a continuum of care to reduce health disparities and improve the quality of life for residents in the Pasadena community.
Pasadena Health Center quickly became the clear answer to help bring quality health care services to meet the growing needs of the Pasadena community. Learn more about the history of Pasadena Health Center.
