Our Path Forward: Community Health Hubs
Harris Health System has embarked on a three-part strategy to improve our population’s health. We’re working to evolve our system of hospitals and outpatient health centers into more integrated health hubs where we will not only offer comprehensive clinical services but also share access to partner resources onsite and through well-established community referrals, all based on the most profound needs in each community. Our initial focus in 2019-20 will be on three familiar themes across our population: food insecurity, housing and utility assistance and exercise.
We gratefully acknowledge the collaborative spirit and committed support of valuable community partners, including the UTHealth School of Public Health, Houston Food Bank, the Harris County Community Services Department, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Texas Medical Center, who are enthusiastically joining us on this ambitious journey.
