Memorial Hermann Health System opened the Greater Heights Community Resource Center earlier this month at 1740 W. 27th St.
Located near Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, the new facility aims to help patients and community members get access to crucial medical care and resources, according to a news release from the hospital system.
The center is designed to help uninsured or underinsured community members get access to primary and preventive care from private health centers, qualified clinics and the Harris Health System. The Houston Food Bank also is on-site to help those who need access to fresh food, and the center is partnering with Houston Volunteer Lawyers to help residents navigate legal issues, including housing concerns.
“Our goal is to help people develop their road map and provide the guidance, support and connections needed to improve their health,” Carol Paret, Memorial Hermann’s senior vice president and chief community health officer, said in a news release.
