USC has a proud tradition of serving the community. This tradition continues with the charitable mission of Keck Hospital of USC. We are committed to play an active leadership role and fulfill our obligation to give back to the community.
As a tax-exempt hospital, we are required by law to complete a community health needs assessment every three years. A needs assessment is the primary tool used by a hospital to determine its “community benefit” plan, that is, how the hospital will give back to the community in the form of health care and other community health services to address unmet community needs. The 2010 Community Health Needs Assessment can be found by clicking on the link below.
