Community Medicine

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

As a fully integrated healthcare system offering primary, secondary and acute care to patients, Harris Health provides residents with a primary care medical home in their neighborhood, with access to higher levels of care when needed. Harris Health offers residents of Harris County primary care through a coordinated network of:

• Community health centers,
• School-based clinics,
• Same day clinics,
• A dental program with six locations, and
• Five mobile health units

Each year, Harris Health 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).

At your Harris Health medical home, you will find:
• Health screenings and immunizations
• Check-ups and physical exams
• Care and help for your medical problems
• Women’s health
• Pregnancy care
• Well-baby and pediatric care
• Diabetes care and education
