Cherished Futures Welcomes New Cohort of Hospitals

Meet the 2022-2023 Cherished Futures Hospital Teams!

Cherished Futures for Black Moms & Babies is thrilled to welcome a new cohort of hospitals to engage in a multi-sector initiative that aims to reduce Black infant deaths and improve patient experiences and safety for Black moms and birthing families in Los Angeles County. The new cohort of participating hospitals consists of Antelope Valley Hospital, MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach, St. Francis Medical Center, Torrance Memorial and UCLA Health.

These hospitals collectively serve a significant proportion of Black birthing families across Los Angeles County and through the two-year cohort experience, will have an exciting opportunity to create large-scale impacts that improve birth equity.

Cherished Futures is a joint initiative of Communities Lifting Communities, the Public Health Alliance of Southern California and HASC.
