A new program will attempt to help bridge the gap between primary and hospital care for South Los Angeles patients, who all too often “get lost in the system.” That’s according to Nina Vaccaro, the executive director of the Southside Coalition of Community Health Centers. The group, which is comprised of eight federally-qualified health centers in South L.A., is developing a program that would place two “care coordinators” at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood.
