Community Outreach

GAMC is proud to provide the community with many programs and services that improve health status and quality of life, address health problems of the poor and other vulnerable populations, and contain community health care costs. GAMC has met these goals through many of the following:

  • Treating thousands of inpatients each year (including acute, psychiatric, and rehab admits). We also see thousands of patients in the Emergency Department, outpatient procedures and as home care visits.

  • Assisting children and families with free or low cost health insurance through the Glendale Adventist Children’s Health outreach Initiative (CHOI).

  • Donating funds to other civic and charitable organizations in Glendale and surrounding communities

  • Providing our community with access to health screenings, support groups and health education classes.

Our community outreach services and programs help address the needs of people in our community who may otherwise not receive help. Listed below are a few of the outreach services and programs we offer and support.


Sponsored HEALTHline, a monthly TV show featuring physicians, community leaders and other institutes to address both general health topics as well as specific community health issues.

Live Well Senior Program

The Live Well Senior Program provides free and low cost membership-based options to help individuals ages 55 and above navigate the health care system by providing access to health information.

Glendale Healthy Kids

A community-based collaborative relationship among health care providers throughout Glendale, Glendale Healthy Kids provides free medical and dental care, therapy and other health services to children of families unable to afford health care.

Glendale Adventist facilitated this organization's development in northeast Los Angeles, where 50 percent of students never graduate from high school and 50 percent of pregnancies are among teenagers.
