San José Clinic was founded more than 90 years ago with the faith of Monsignor George T. Walsh, fifty charitable women and devoted volunteers. Over nearly a century, the Clinic has grown from a small frame house to a multi-level healthcare facility, making San José Clinic the leading provider of quality healthcare services for the underserved in the Greater Houston area.
Throughout the Clinic’s long history the mission has been unwavering; to provide quality healthcare and education to those with limited access to such services in an environment which respects the dignity of each person. The Clinic provides a health home for those most often forgotten. Services include primary, preventative and specialty medical care; comprehensive women’s health services; nutritional and diabetic counseling; vision services; general, restorative and specialty dental care; x-ray and pharmacy services.
San José Clinic does not accept federal or third party reimbursement; therefore, we rely heavily on volunteerism, donated medications and supplies and philanthropic support, which combine to keep costs at a minimum. Last year, the Clinic received donations of over $2.8 million worth of prescription medicine, over $450,000 worth of medical laboratory services and over $2.7 million in philanthropic support.
In 2012, the Clinic provided 31,153 healthcare visits to 4,328 patients. This was made possible by the extensive corp of volunteers, including retired physicians, private practice and other physicians, dentists, residents, students, corporate employees, family and friends continue to work side by side our staff to further the mission of San José Clinic. Last year, this dedicated group of volunteers was comprised of 790 individuals, visiting on their own or as part of one of the Clinic’s nearly fifty academic affiliations and collaborative partners. Of the total, 614 individuals delivered direct patient care, including dentists, physicians, registered dental hygienists, registered nurses and medical and dental assistants. The remaining volunteers supported patient care through administrative functions such as medical translation, chart auditing and special events, among many other projects. Together, they contributed 23,205 hours of their time at a value of $776,434, up $75,000 from the year before.
