On Wednesday, August 7, local businesses, organizations, and residents will come together with one mission - to create a healthy beach community.

Our goal is to enhance our community’s health through the act of volunteerism.

About Beach Cities Health District

Location:

514 N. Prospect, Redondo Beach, CA 90277, US

Mission Statement

Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) is a healthcare district focused on preventive health and serves the communities of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. Established in 1955 as a public agency, it offers an extensive range of dynamic health and wellness programs, with innovative services and facilities to promote health and prevent diseases across the lifespan.

Description



Focusing on wellness, not sickness, encourages people to make wiser healthcare decisions. Preventative causes of illness and death, like tobacco smoking, poor diet and physical inactivity, are estimated to be responsible for nearly a million deaths annually-almost 40 percent of total yearly mortality in the United States. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 90 percent of today’s healthcare costs are for treating people with chronic yet preventable diseases. BCHD’s wellness and healthy living programs and services are aimed at making prevention an integral part of the classrooms, workplace and homes of the beach cities.

To enhance community health through partnerships, programs and services for people who live and work in Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo Beach.
