Who We Are

We are more than a clinic

UMMA envisions itself as part of a larger network of institutions addressing the health and well-being of the underserved and indigent, mindful of the cultural, spiritual, social and economic realities that impinge upon them, and the traditional barriers to accessing care.

Our Mission

To promote the well-being of the underserved by providing access to high-quality healthcare for all, regardless of ability to pay.

Our services, activities and governance reflect the Islamic values and moral principles which inspired our founders. These include the core values which are universally shared and revered by society at large: Service, Compassion, Human Dignity, Social Justice, and Ethical Conduct.

“Twenty-one years ago, our founders had a vision that was driven by their faith to establish a free health clinic to serve those most in need. Today, that vision is a reality. We have achieved Federally Qualified Health Center status and are considered by other clinics across the country to be an example of leading-edge community-based care. The difference between our facilities and some of the other clinics in the area resonates in the feeling of warmth and dignity that emanates from our staff and providers. UMMA is more than a clinic – it’s a medical home.

I am pleased and honored to serve as the chairman of UMMA’s board. I have great faith that our organization will continue its strong tradition of serving the needs of the South Los Angeles community

“The staff is very helpful, very accommodating. I never felt rushed, I never felt that because they were providing the services for free, that they gave less than their best.”
