A study of health care services at the Mission Neighborhood Health Center in San Francisco was part of a review of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) Community Health Center program. Legislation provides for grants to develop these centers for medically underserved populations.

The area served by the Mission Neighborhood Health Center does not qualify as underserved because the Center duplicates services available at other health facilities. The number of private physicians in the area has increased from 20 to 200. The area is served by the San Francisco General Hospital and St. Luke's Hospital, both with outpatient clinics, and the Southeast Ambulatory Health Center. Dental services have also increased. Some of these facilities are funded by HEW. Program utilization was found to be lower than stipulated in guidelines.
