Community Medicine

The Harris County Hospital District was one of the nation’s first healthcare systems to embrace the concept of neighborhood primary care, otherwise referred to as a medical home.

With a fully integrated healthcare system offering primary, secondary and acute care to patients, the hospital district provides residents with a primary medical home in their neighborhood with access to higher levels of care when needed. HCHD currently offers residents of Harris County primary care through a network of the following:

• 14 community health centers,
•  Nine school-based clinics,
•  A dental program with seven locations, and
•  Five mobile health units

Each year, the hospital district offers patients access to medical homes in their communities staffed with first-class physicians from Baylor College of Medicine and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).

• Health screenings and immunizations
• Check-ups and physical exams
