What is Community Health?

Community health is designed to keep people well, manage chronic illnesses, and improve the overall health of our communities. At CHRISTUS Health, we are committed to improving the health of individuals so all may experience God’s healing, presence, and love.

Providing Care to Our Community

CHRISTUS Health believes that every individual should receive quality care, regardless of their health insurance status. That is why we bear the financial burden to ensure our uninsured community gets the care they deserve.
