One local nonprofit community health center aims to provide affordable healthcare for Valley residents, and to do so, relies on necessary funding.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded Su Clinica nearly $6.9 million, and the organization says it will go towards vital services.
Patient care is their priority, they say, and with clinics in Brownsville, Harlingen, Raymondville, and Santa Rosa, they work with thousands of people in the Valley.
They serve over 31,000 people on an annual basis who rely on their services to receive proper healthcare.
Out of that number, 13,000 to 14,000 are uninsured or underinsured.
“Our patients are able to access primary care, women’s health services, behavioral health services, and support services such as pharmacy, lab and x-ray here at our site,” Christina Perez, COO of Su Clinica Familiar, says.
Health center officials say that without this funding, residents would not have access to healthcare as needed.
