Serving as a founder of South of Market Health Center, one of San Francisco's premier Health Centers, Mrs. Westbrook helped create the national community-based health center movement. Today there are more than 1200 health centers across the country serving more than 17 million people. These health centers target and provide quality, culturally and linguistically sensitive primary medical care for uninsured, underinsured, and low-income individuals and families.
The San Francisco Community Clinic Consortium will be forever thankful to Mrs. Westbrook and her work, especially, on behalf of the million-plus patients who have received health care from our partner health centers in the past 40 years!
