West Los Angeles in The News

World Sickle Cell Awareness Day is June 19

The United Nations created this day to raise awareness of sickle cell disease (SCD). SCD is the most common inherited blood condition in the United States. It occurs in about 1 out of every 365 Black births, and 1 in every 16,300 Hispanic American births, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Kaiser Permanente Southern California has a long history of providing high-quality care with research and comprehensive treatment for SCD patients, underscoring our commitment to being at the forefront of providing culturally responsive care for the diverse communities we serve.

Kaiser Permanente Southern California's nationally recognized sickle cell program offers innovative therapies and acute care in clinics to prevent hospitalization. A close partnership exists between the award-winning Sickle Cell Center of Excellence at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles and the Regional Sickle Cell Center for pediatric patients established in 2021 at Kaiser Permanente Downey. This multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered dieticians, and social services takes a comprehensive approach to the treatment of the disease.
