This clinic was chartered in 1974, but has been providing health services to the people of Gonzales County since 1966.
The service area has been designated as a Medically Under-served Area, Health Professional Shortage Area and a Medically Under-served Population. The clinic maintains three service sites and provides services such as pharmacy, laboratory, social services, family planning, HIV/AIDS testing and counseling, health education, nutrition counseling, WIC, transportation assistance, immunizations, and obstetrics.
The clinic also has programs in place for specialist physician referrals, dental referrals, and referrals for substance abuse and mental health counseling.
We also have Dental services at each of the clinics. We offer unconventional hours at each of our sites to meet the needs of the population we serve.
Since 1966 we have been a private non-profit corporation. We began as a volunteer clinic with one part-time Physician and a Nurse. We have expanded to over 90 full and part time employees and continue to grow.
We received a generous donation of land from the City of Gonzales where our new 15,000 square foot facility resides. And in the new facility we now have a fully operational Dental Center.
In response to the demand for services and in keeping with our economic development mission, we expanded our services to the north of us and have a second facility located in Luling, and a third facility on Seguin, Texas.
It is the mission of the CHCSCT to operate a not-for-profit health related entity for the promotion of the health of the community.
CHCSCT has a vision to expand its existing facilities and services and build/expand services on a timely and appropriate basis to meet the health care needs of South Central Texas as support and facilities are available.
CHCSCT has a vision to offer preventive and primary care services and treatment of the sick, injured, afflicted, and disabled without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age, religion, economic status, or disability.
CHCSCT values the need to provide quality and comprehensive, preventive and primary health care throughout the entire life cycle of the individuals we serve, who in general, may not be able to receive care elsewhere, especially patients with Medicaid, Medicare, and those who are medically uninsured or under-insured.
