Our mission: Provide the best, low cost health clinic services for underserved families

Hurtt Family Health Clinic is a low cost medical clinic that provides safety net services to the underserved of Orange County. It anchors the medical program of Orange County Rescue Mission (OCRM), the largest faith-based, non-profit organization in the United States. We are able to provide Orange County free clinic and low-cost services through the following:


Federal funding

Hurtt Family Health Clinic is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that receives funding from the Department of Health and Human Services. FQHCs have to meet strict eligibility requirements, including providing a sliding fee scale and having a governing board that includes patients.

Community partnerships

Hurtt Family Health Clinic is the product of genuine community spirit. We work in partnership with individuals, families and companies, including pharmacies and health service providers, who generously donate funds, services, and other forms of assistance to the clinic. We were named after the Hurtt family, a long-time donor of OCRM. Volunteers regularly provide their free time and effort to help us achieve our goals.


Our history

Orange County Rescue Mission was founded in the 1960s by Tech Sergeant Lewis Whitehead, through donations from the community to support the homeless in Orange County. OCRM’s flagship transitional living facility, the Village of Hope in Tustin, has expanded over the years to a 5-acre complex that includes 150,000 square feet of shelter, 262 beds, and the 6,000-square-foot Hurtt Family Health Clinic.

Hurtt Family Health Clinic was established in 2000 as a mobile clinic, and had its first permanent site at the Village of Hope in 2008. The mobile clinic remains operational, reaching out to the homeless and low-income families in various parts of Orange County.

Tattoo Removal Services

A tattoo can have significant and long-lasting value to an individual – but it can also be just a passing fancy. About 25% of Americans have tattoos, and of these, around half will eventually want their tattoos removed.

In the past, tattoo removal was a riskier process, with a higher prevalence of infection, scarring and other side effects. But with the introduction of laser technology, the procedure has become much safer and easier, with minimal side effects.

Hurtt Family Health Clinic offers laser tattoo removal Orange County residents will find highly affordable.

  • Our tattoo removal rate is $75 per session, size can be up to 8.5 x 11 inches (approximate size of piece of standard printer paper)
  • Most tattoos can be removed in 5 to 15 sessions
  • You will be attended to by clinicians who are certified laser removal specialists
  • We use Astanza “Duality” laser, a highly reliable technology that has been proven to remove tattoos faster and with better results


How laser tattoo removal works

It’s important to note that some limitations may be expected from the laser tattoo removal process. It may not be possible to remove the entire tattoo – some colors could lighten but still be visible to a certain degree.

Lasers work by destroying the cells with the tattoo pigments, leaving the rest of the skin and other tissues unharmed. This results in little to no scarring and side effects, unlike other tattoo removal techniques like dermabrasion or excision. In fact, a laser procedure can help repair or minimize skin damage caused by previous tattoo removals using other techniques.

Different colors react in different ways to light wavelengths, so several lasers may be used in removing an entire tattoo. Black, blue and green are known to be more easily removed by laser compared to other colors. Yellow, purple and turquoise, as well as fluorescent pigments, are the most difficult to remove and may require several sessions.

In addition to the size and colors of your tattoo, other factors that can determine the needed number of sessions are:

  • Age – Older tattoos generally fade more easily
  • Who did the tattoo – Tattoos done by amateurs are often easier to remove than those done by professionals
  • Part of the body – Tattoos on certain parts of the body – like the lower parts of the legs or arms – are typically more difficult to remove


Possible side effects

While laser tattoo removal is generally safe for everyone, there are still some risks of side effects, including:

  • Infection on the tattoo removal site
  • Permanent scarring or skin indentation
  • Hypopigmentation (treated skin is lighter in color) or hyperpigmentation (treated skin is darker in color)
  • Darkening of cosmetic tattoos, such as eyebrows, lip liner and eye liner

Allergy is also a potential side effect. However, before the removal process starts, some tests may be run to determine your skin’s reaction to the laser.


What to expect during the procedure

Laser tattoo removal is highly tolerated by most patients, who have described the sensation as similar to grease spatter or the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. Anesthesia is generally not necessary, but may be used if you have lower pain tolerance or if the tattoo is located on a more sensitive part of the body.

After the treatment, the treated area will be soothed by an ice pack. Topical antibiotic may also be prescribed to prevent infections. To know more about the procedure, call Hurtt Family Clinic for an appointment at (714) 247-0300.

Hurtt Family Health Clinic & Medicaid (Medi-Cal)/Medicare

Our partnerships with Medicaid (Medi-Cal) and Medicare are aimed to support underserved families and individuals in Orange County who need access to quality healthcare.

As a low cost medical clinic, we offer a full scope of primary, preventative, and specialized health care in Orange County. We have fixed medical locations in Santa Ana, Anaheim, and Tustin that welcome both insured and uninsured patients.

Below are some of the services we offer:

  • Well-baby and well-child checkups
  • Well-woman exams and clinical breast exams
  • Physical examinations
  • Management and treatment of diabetes and chronic illness
  • Provision of medication when applicable
  • Low cost referrals for specialized needs
  • Patient education classes including chronic illness management, personal hygiene, and nutrition


What’s the difference between Medicaid (Medi-Cal) and Medicare?

Both Medicare and Medicaid (Medi-Cal) are government-sponsored medical insurance programs that are designed to cover healthcare costs. In 1965, these programs were created to aid individuals who need medical help but cannot afford private medical insurance.  However, Medicaid (Medi-Cal) and Medicare are not the same. Read on to learn more about each insurance program.


Medicare provides health coverage for patients who are 65 and above. It is a federal program that is designed to help even those who have severe disability, regardless of their income.

How to qualify for Medicare

  • You are 65 years old or above and are a US citizen or a permanent legal resident who has lived in the United States for at least 5 years
  • You or your spouse has worked for a sufficient amount of time to be eligible for railroad retirement or Social Security benefits
  • You or your spouse is a government retiree or employee who has paid Medicare payroll taxes while working

You can still qualify for Medicare even if you are under 65 years old but with End-Stage Renal Disease or ESRD. ERSD is the final stage of chronic kidney disease, wherein a person’s kidneys no longer function properly to sustain the needs of daily life.

A person may be eligible for Medicare if she or he has ERSD, and meets any of the following qualifications:

  • You are under 65 years old and receiving Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI
  • You are eligible or is already receiving railroad retirement benefits
  • You are getting dialysis treatments
  • You have had a kidney transplant
  • You, your spouse, or your parent paid Medicare taxes for a sufficient amount of time that meet the specifications of the Social Security Administration

Medicaid (Medi-Cal)

Medicaid is both a state and federal program that is designed to offer health coverage assistance to those who have a very low income. A person may qualify for receiving free or low-cost health care through Medicaid, depending on your income and family size. Check this chart to see if your income is in the range to qualify for Medicaid assistance

Medi-Cal is specific to California residents and offers free or low-cost health coverage to individuals with limited income. To learn more about Medi-Cal specific to Orange County and our partnership with CalOptima, please visit: https://www.caloptima.org/en/Members/Medi-Cal.aspx
