Christ Clinic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides charity healthcare to adults and children in the Katy/West Houston area who do not have health insurance or other means to obtain medical care. Christ Clinic opened its doors in October 2000 and by the end of 2008 it had served over 11,000 patients at an ever increasing rate. Christ Clinic is funded by grants, corporate contributions, church and individual donations, and some fundraising.
Christ Clinic is attempting to meet the ever-increasing demand for charity healthcare in our community. While some of the licensed providers are paid staff, most of the staff are medical volunteers and together they provide both acute and chronic care to the Clinic’s patients. Currently, we are in need of medical volunteers including Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, and Physician’s Assistants.
The year 2008 truly reflected remarkable growth of Christ Clinic and for that performance it received the “Charity of the Year” award from the Houston Christian Chamber of Commerce. Nevertheless, its goal is to continue to expand its services and clinic hours for patients as funding is available.
