OUR GOAL:

Christ Clinic’s goal is to bridge the gap between health inequities and lasting wellness for the uninsured and underinsured in our community. We will achieve this goal through the provision of patient-centered primary and preventative care, a strong partner network, and diverse fundraising strategies to ensure the clinic’s ability to serve communities in the region for years to come. The clinic will set a high standard for accessible, reliable, high-quality medical services to the financially challenged residents of all faiths, races, and creeds.


wHERE WE COME FROM

Christ Clinic began in 2000 as an outreach ministry in Memorial Lutheran Church in Katy, operating as a weekly wellness clinic in the church’s gym. In 2006, the clinic moved to a new facility with four exam rooms and began operating three days a week. Christ Clinic was established as an independent 501 (c) 3 in 2012.
Since 2012, Christ Clinic has experienced tremendous growth, as shown in some highlights below.

  • In 2014, the clinic served 2,470 patients.
  • In 2016, the clinic moved again, expanded to 10 exam rooms, added aftercare services, and established its Integrated Behavioral Health Program (IBHP) in collaboration with Krist Samaritan Counseling Center. That same year, the clinic served 5,366 patients.
  • In 2017, in response to Hurricane Harvey, Christ Clinic benefited from a temporary influx in both volunteers and funds. As a result the clinic served 11,809 patients.
  • In 2018, the clinic established itself as a walk-in facility allowing for same day services and increasing access to care. That same year, the clinic served 6,408 patients. Last year, the clinic moved its administrative offices, joining a network of Katy area social service providers with whom it collaborates, and established three additional exam rooms. The clinic also began the transformation process to establish itself as a Patient Centered Medical Home. The clinic provided care to 6,448 patients.
