Primary care is provided through Family Medicine, the private clinic of the faculty of the Department of Family and Community Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. Family Medicine integrates Family Medicine with Geriatric and Sports Medicine, behavioral health and nutrition services. Our physicians and physician assistants offer preventive care, diagnosis, and treatment at three locations, Baylor Clinic in the Texas Medical Center at 6620 Main St., Upper Kirby at 3701 Kirby Dr., and River Oaks at 3743 Westheimer Rd. We offer extended hours and same day appointments for acute health concerns.
Community Health Programs
Our Community Health Mission Area is dedicated to improving the health of medically underserved populations in the Houston/Harris County area. Partnering with Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services, Harris Health System, Healthcare for the Homeless - Houston, Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD, Santa Maria Hostel and several other safety net organizations, Community Health Program clinicians see patients at seven Health Centers and five Same Day Clinics. They also educate medical students, physician assistant students, and Family Medicine residents, giving first-hand experience in a safety-net clinic setting.
Healthcare for the Homeless - Houston
Healthcare for the Homeless - Houston (HHH) was designated a 501(c)(3) in 2001 with the mission of promoting health, hope and dignity for Houston's homeless through accessible and comprehensive care. What began as a two room clinic with an adjacent dental chair has grown into three integrated primary care clinics, a three operatory dental clinic, jail and hospital inreach programs, a street medicine program, stabilization services within Permanent Supportive Housing, and a first-of-its-kind transportation project.
