Sustainable Health - Be Healthy!
UHPhealth delivers affordable, accessible, community-based healthcare services through our two safety net clinics to under-served uninsured and under-insured communities. We are member of both National Association of free and charitable clinics (NAFCC) and Texas Association of charitable clinics (TXACC). At UHPhealth, we believe that Health & Wellness are Human basic right that all communities deserve and healthy living involves all aspects of a person’s life. Therefore we address Social Determinants of Health (SDH).
Our board-certified physicians, nurses and allied health professional, strive to provide high quality, personalized patient oriented medical services.
Services are offered on a sliding scale, which is based on household size and income; however, we accept all patients regardless of insurance, status, or income. We are enrolled in the Texas Vaccines for Children Program, and partner closely with school nurses to identify and provide vaccinations to children in need.
Why is it important to immunize?
U.S. health officials say some diseases are almost gone from the U.S., but we need to continue to immunize our children and ourselves.
Some diseases, like polio and diphtheria, are becoming very rare because we have been vaccinating against them. But that does not mean we should stop vaccinating. There is still a chance for a disease to go back up unless is fully eliminated.
For example, our children now no longer need to be vaccinated against “smallpox” because we eradicated the disease. If we continue to do the same for other diseases hopefully their effects will come to an end too.
We are a participant in Texas Community Partner Program which is a bridge between Texas Health and Human Services and Texas communities to provide Texans access to food, cash and additional health care assistance. We work closely with individuals to navigate potential benefits that can support their basic life needs.
