Laboratory Testing & Blood Work
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 get blood work done?
Your doctor may ask to to get routine blood work done at least once a year. This is important because blood tests can catch the warning sings of almost any disease early. For example, knowing you HDL and LDL cholesterol can help you make healthy changes to your lifestyle and reduce unhealthy habits to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.
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.
