Martin Luther King Jr. Health Center is located in Quentin Mease Hospital between the Texas Medical Center and the University of Houston on N. MacGregor Way. The Family Practice Center serves a mostly adult African-American population in central Harris County. The typical patient has multiple chronic medical problems, significant literacy issues and is reliant on multiple medications.
Over the past five years, the clinic physicians and staff have worked toward providing better service to our patients by streamlining the service. This year a program where patient arrivals and discharges are better managed has resulted in decreased patient wait time. A pharmacy management clinic also has been developed with nurse, nutritionist and physician team to provide more complete care for our challenging patient base.
These are just a couple of the exciting things happening at our clinic where over 40,000 patients are cared for each year.
