Mission: The mission of San José Clinic is to provide quality healthcare and education to those with limited access to such services in an environment which respects the dignity of each person.
Results: This year, San José Clinic built partnerships and expanding programs to ensure more of the needs of the community were being met. For example, the Clinic added a Radiology program and expanded Women’s Health Services to include greater access to breast and cervical cancer screenings.
Target demographics: San José Clinic is transforming the way healthcare is provided, through its comprehensive, integrated and coordinated services for the most vulnerable population who have the least access to care. Patients of the Clinic are all uninsured, and 64% of patients live at or below 100% of the FPL. The Clinic’s broad scope of services are available to individuals of all ages, denominations, race, ethnicity and gender, without geographic restrictions.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 4,288 individuals in 2011, 3,867 through 3rd Quarter 2012
Geographic areas served: The Clinic serves more than 20 counties across Southeast Texas. 85% of patients live in Harris County; 6% of patients are from Fort Bend County and 4% of patients are from Brazoria County. With the remaining 5% from across the region, patients travel from as far as Panola County in East Texas on the Louisiana border and Cameron County in South Texas on the Mexico border to receive care.
Programs: The Clinic provides healthcare for those who need a health home the most, including primary and specialty medical and dental care as well as laboratory, radiology and pharmacy services.
No one should be without needed medical care. San Jose Clinic helps ensure that people in our community have access to medical and dental resources at no cost. I couldn't think of a more honorable cause.
