A Note from Liz Providing quality primary healthcare to people in need.

Dear Friends, For two years, we’ve been hard at work designing a future-focused pediatric clinic that would bring quality services to the most vulnerable young members of our community. This June, Venice Family Clinic opened its tenth health center, the Lou Colen Children’s Health & Wellness Center in Mar Vista—the largest pocket of poverty on the Westside of Los Angeles. It may be hard to believe, but right now more than 6,000 children on the Westside have no regular access to health care. No way to see a doctor for a flu shot. No one to care for a toothache. And no one to help parents who are working hard and struggling to provide the best for their children. We knew we needed to do something, and we had to do it in a thoughtful, purposeful, and creative way. The planning process for this health center was unlike any that we have undertaken before. We brought together nonprofit, healthcare, creative, and community leaders, as well as patients, with a single purpose: to design a one-of-a-kind center where children and families could thrive. Regularly, we found ourselves looking through the eyes of our patients and their families. In one moment, we would be considering the colors and textures that would best engage young minds. At other times, we remembered our own experiences as patients and caregivers (I know all too well what it’s like to be a busy mom juggling sick boys at a doctor’s visit). At every turn we asked, “Is there a better way to serve our patients?” This spirit of innovative support infuses everything we do at Venice Family Clinic. I am so excited to see how the new Lou Colen Children’s Health and Wellness Center touches the thousands of infants, children and teens who need quality health care. Together, I know we will continue to find new ways to help each family thrive and succeed. Thank you for your support,

Venice Family Clinic Expands Access for Kids The Lou Colen Children’s Health and Wellness Center is now open in Mar Vista, and this innovative pediatric medical home is quickly becoming the go-to health center for thousands of infants, kids and teens that need quality care. At capacity, the new center will serve 4,500 pediatric patients. The expansion will also allow the Irma Colen Health Center next door to see 1,000 new adult patients. Thanks to the help of our dedicated donors, community partners and volunteer leadership, children will have expanded access to low-cost, quality healthcare that strengthens their families and their futures. Services include: • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Not only is the new health center a “one-stop shop” for Venice Family Clinic’s families seeking comprehensive and integrated health care, it is also our most technologically advanced and patientcentered clinic yet – designed especially for our most in-need families.

“It was crucial to build our new pediatric health center in the most underserved area of our community.”

-- Elizabeth Benson Forer CEO & Executive Director

Serving the Community When most people think of the Westside of Los Angeles, they envision an affluent region with plenty of access to housing, medical care, education, and more. However, the reality paints a different picture. In fact, there are 29,000 lowincome children living in this area. Of these, 6,000 are uninsured and 6,000 have no regular source of health care. ”It was crucial to build our new pediatric

health center in the most underserved area of our community,” said Elizabeth Benson Forer, CEO & Executive Director. “Time is precious, especially if you are struggling to juggle work, childcare, school, transportation, and more. It wouldn’t work if a parent needed to drive miles, or take a long bus ride, to reach their children’s doctors. When a spot opened up next to Irma Colen Health Center – just down the way from three local schools and the public housing development, in a big walking community – we couldn’t pass it up.” The Lou Colen Children’s Health and Wellness Center was specifically designed for children. Patients are welcomed into an open, engaging space defined by peaceful colors, an indoor forest book nook for children to play and learn, and a virtual art wall for hands-on fun. A teaching kitchen brings healthy, budget-friendly recipe demonstrations and hands-on cooking classes to the community. Exam rooms also feature nature themed designs, interactive educational programming via in-room televisions, and welcoming furniture. Turn to page six for a full tour of the center’s exciting advances! So, what led to these forward-thinking changes?

Building a Patient-Centered Medical Home As Venice Family Clinic leadership started planning, they quickly decided that they would address common patient concerns, like frequently moving from room to room during one appointment,with innovative strategies. Using design thinking, a technique that focuses on finding creative ways to solve problems, a new and dynamic medical home began coming together.

“By bringing all of the steps of a patient’s visit together, we can provide care for the WHOLE person instead of just one aspect of them.”

-- Anita Zamora Chief Operations Officer We reimagined the flow, structure, and design of the Lou Colen Children’s Center in a way that maximized the patient experience while also reducing overall costs. The UCLA Business of Science Center and Pasadena Art Center also stepped in to help inspire new exam rooms, and envision a bright and welcoming space. Their team even created PVC models, complete with mini furniture so that Venice Family Clinic’s medical providers could actively suggest changes to help streamline patient visits. Special thanks to Leon Segal and Scott Underwood of Innovationship for their brilliant guidance; to our fantastic architect Russ Tyner of Houston Tyner; and our outstanding contractors from Jensen Zigman. Forbes Magazine took notice of these exciting developments, and featured Venice Family Clinic in an article that explored how design thinking

was changing the future of health care. Visit design-thinking-in-healthcare-one-step-at-a-time/ to read the full story! We were also thrilled to be featured on the front page of the Los Angeles Times local section, at http://www.latimes. com/local/westside/la-me-venice-clinic-design20150727-story.html. Thanks to this process, patients will no longer bounce from one room to another. Instead, medical staff come to them, in their own exam room. Providers are able to coordinate care in one central team space, where every part of a patient’s team – including doctors, nurses, medical assistants, health educators, counselors, and dentists – can all work together. A special greeter is always on-site to help families navigate their visit and answer questions that lower stress and increase positive experiences. “By bringing all of the steps of a patient’s visit together, we can provide care for the WHOLE person instead of just one aspect of them,” said Anita Zamora, Chief Operations Officer at Venice Family Clinic. “Our incredible team of architects, builders, designers, thought-leaders, staff members, clinic administrators, patients and more really created a patient-centered medical home that is unlike any other.”

Thanking Our Supporters We are truly grateful for the support of our donors, foundations, and partners as we worked to create this children-focused space. Without your generosity, thousands of underserved children would lack access to the basic health care we all deserve. Special thanks to the late Lou Colen and his family for their tireless dedication to Venice Family Clinic and the people we serve.

Inside the Lou Colen Chil Staff Lounge

The new staff lounge features a skylight and updated lockers for team members.

Counseling Rooms

Our nature themed exam rooms are bigger, which means medical teams can come directly to patients; no more moving from room to room! Toys and books in each room help keep things interesting and fun while they wait, and even the vitals cubbies match our colorful themes.

These three rooms will include: health education, health insurance, and behavioral health. Each office is set up the same way so that staff can easily move between these rooms to see patients.


If a child needs blood work, vaccines, or other special procedures at the Lou Colen Health Center, we can take care of them in the central laboratory, shared with Irma Colen Health Center.

We brought the outside in with trees and grass so that kids can play, read, and have fun. Parents can sit nearby on seating that was chosen with families in mind.

Make an Impact During Phase 2! There’s still time to make a difference for children on the Westside! We’re gearing up to start Phase 2 of this innovative project – including dental, pharmacy, exercise and more – but we need your help. Join us and bring top-quality care to thousands of people in need. Visit or contact DeNeisha Calvert ( and 310-664-7917) for ways to give.

Virtual Art Wall

Across from the forest book nook is the digital art wall, where kids and families can play games, learn about health, or practice their artistic skills while they wait.

ldren’s Health & Wellness Center Family Exam Room In this room, our medical team - doctors, nurses, medical assistants, health educators, counselors, and dentists - will all work together to make sure their pediatric patients get comprehensive care.

This exam room is larger than the others, so bigger families and group visits can fit comfortably. We can also do trainings and education classes here.

TV Screens

In the hallways, exam room, and lobby, TV screens share health education information. They can also showcase activities going on in the teaching kitchen.

As soon as your walk in, you will see a beautiful acknowledgment of our supporters. We are so grateful to them for helping us create this new center!

In the kitchen, families will spend time together with each other while learning fun, healthy, affordable recipes.


Stabilizing Pediatric Funders Venice Family Clinic is the medical home for more than 6,000 kids every year – with more to come, thanks to the launch of our Lou Colen Children’s Health and Wellness Center! Our care teams work hard to ensure that we continue to meet the comprehensive needs of our youngest and most vulnerable patients. In order to dream big it’s important that we have our feet planted firmly on the ground. To do this, we rely on generous, stable support to provide our kids with Venice Family Clinic’s full scope of services. Venice Family Clinic recently discussed the concept of stabilizing funders with Richard Atlas of the Atlas Family Foundation. Richard and Lezlie Atlas have long championed the importance of building a healthy foundation for our kids. For more than a decade, they have made multi-year commitments to Venice Family Clinic, underwriting primary care for thousands of children ages 0-3. “We invest in building human capital with a focus on the foundation, the very beginning of life where early experiences and relationships set the trajectory for each of us optimizing our potential,” said Atlas. “Venice Family Clinic is our operating partner in this process.” Children, adolescents and teens at Venice Family Clinic also have the Wilbur May Foundation to thank for sustaining and expanding critical programs including immunizations, our KP KIDS fitness and nutrition program, and our teen clinic. With multi-generational support over 15 years from Anita May Rosenstein, Brian Rosenstein and Amanda May Stefan, we’ve been able to offer babies, adolescents and teens expanded services designed with their needs in mind. These types of long-term investments in general pediatric operations allow clinic leadership to focus their capacity-building efforts on innovative opportunities that will improve care for our families. Thank you to all of the incredible partners whose long-term commitment to pediatric programs has not only ensured our stability, but allowed us to reach for our dreams!

Celebrating Lou Colen’s Legacy (June 20, 1914 – April 28, 2015) Lou Colen was Venice Family Clinic’s greatest champion and trusted advisor. His thoughtful and generous support allowed the volunteers and staff at Venice Family Clinic to imagine the best ways to care for our many patients and Lou helped make these dreams come true. Alongside his wife Irma Colen, Lou worked tirelessly on behalf of people in need of health care in Los Angeles. In 1979, Lou supported Irma when she worked with a group of friends to create the Venice Art Walk to raise funds for the Clinic. In 1983, Lou and Irma created the Silver Circle fundraising program. At our Silver Circle Galas, Lou was always the first on the dance floor encouraging everyone to join him. In 2010, Lou made a transformational gift to celebrate Irma’s legacy at Venice Family Clinic, naming the Irma Colen Health Center and expanding access to care in Mar Vista to thousands of people with low incomes. Now, the Lou Colen Children’s Health and Wellness Center stands right next door to the Irma Colen Health Center; a beautiful tribute to their united passion and work.


We extend our deepest sympathy and gratitude to the Colen family, and know that we are forever better for having known Lou and Irma. We will work each day to carry on their legacy of compassion and care.

New Programs for Youth

The new pediatric center isn’t the only way we’re changing to meet the needs of our kids! Supporting Homeless Youth

This year we expanded services for homeless youth (ages 12-26) in partnership with Safe Place for Youth (S.P.Y.) in Venice, with the help of The Richard F. Dwyer – Eleanor W. Dwyer Fund. “Homeless teens have unique health care needs because they are more likely to be engaged in risky behaviors and often live in very unsafe environments,” notes Venice Family Clinic Physician Assistant, Carrie Kowalski, who provides medical care at Bill’s Clinic twice per week. “We have the opportunity to build trust and empower teens to enact positive change for their health and overall well-being.”

Anthem Blue Cross Presents 28th Annual Children’s Holiday Movie We’re thrilled to announce that Anthem Blue Cross will be the presenting sponsor of the 28th Annual Children’s Holiday Movie event for the second year in a row. Over 1,000 children and their families will come together on December 5, 2015 for a Hollywood style movie premiere at Cinemark 18. Complete with gifts, music, treats and of course, Santa Claus, Anthem Blue Cross’ $25,000 investment will make this a day to remember while providing one year of health care to 500 of our youngest community members.

Revitalizing Resources in Culver City In addition to our homeless youth initiative, Venice Family Clinic Board member Bill Resnick and siblings, Ilene Resnick and Jeffery Resnick gave an extraordinary gift to students and families at Culver City Middle and High Schools that will expand their access to health care for years to come! Together, they endowed the Sandy Segal Youth Health Center, renaming the clinic after their mother, Sandy Bill Resnick and his mother, Sandy Segal Segal. Sandy served as the Culver City Unified School District nurse, and along with the Friends of the Sandy Segal Youth Health Center, continues to advocate and raise funds for the expansion of health care access for all local youth.

Strengthening Children First/Early Head Start To ensure our youngest and most vulnerable kids get the best start possible, our Children First/Early Head Start Program continues to expand. Stacey Scarborough, the Director of Children First/Early Head Start, comments on some of our exciting initiatives. “We’re starting to measure family outcomes, which show how to help children succeed in school, and parents are participating in monthly meetings to better support their children’s progress,” she said. “There are many layers to succeeding, and we want to make sure our most at-risk families receive the best possible tools from our team.” 9

Art Walk Raises More than $700,000! Thousands of people came out to support Venice Family Clinic’s Art Walk & Auctions at Google Venice on Sunday, May 17. By the end of the day, more than $700,000 was raised – a record breaking total! This year’s silent auction featured an incredible array of acclaimed and up-and-coming local artists, a beer garden with live music, and a community street fair with an Imagination Station area for children and doggie day care for furry guests.

Silver Circle Donors Go Above and Beyond

On March 9, 2015 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, hundreds guests attended Venice Family Clinic’s 33rd Annual Silver Circle Gala! Thanks to their generosity, thousands of men, women and children on the Westside can access quality health care. The event, sponsored by UCLA Health System and the David Geffen School of Medicine, honored Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of CBS Corporation with the Humanitarian Award. Philanthropists Dr. Bill Resnick and Michael J. Stubbs received the Irma Colen Leadership Award. Patient Board Member Dr. Nadia Shaheen shared how Venice Family Clinic helped her family when she came from Iraq to America. She expressed a heartfelt vow: “When I succeed and get my medical license in the United States, I will volunteer as a doctor at Venice Family Clinic and give back to those who gave so much to me.” Presenters included Emmy-winning producer and writer Chuck Lorre, LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, and Venice Family Clinic CEO Liz Forer. Other special guests included Matthew Perry, Pauley Perrette, Gina Rodriguez, and more. Special thanks go to our exceptional host, Emmy-nominated actor and artist, LL Cool J, and to Grammy-nominated singer Josh Groban for his captivating performances. We are so grateful to have their support, and yours, as we work to bring innovative care, resources and services to the community.
