What We're About

Quality Health Care For The Entire Family

about.jpgAccessHealth is a private, not-for-profit community health center established in the community in 1975. AccessHealth became a Federally Qualified Health Center in 2002.  

We provide quality health care for the entire family. Our dedicated group of health care providers work together to ensure that every patient receives high quality, comprehensive and affordable health care. 

AccessHealth does not turn away anyone in need. We serve approximately 27,000 individuals per year and welcome anyone in need of health care services 

Individuals with family incomes below 200% of the federal poverty level are eligible for sliding scale fees. Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP and MOST PRIVATE INSURANCES are accepted. Individuals who have no insurance and are eligible for discounted services and may be placed in a discounted fee group, based on their family size and household income. 

AccessHealth is an equal opportunity provider and a Federally Qualified Health Center. We are also a member of the Texas Association of Community Health Centers.

AccessHealth is a private, not-for-profit organization and Federally Qualified Health Center focusing on providing primary health care services for the low-income population of Fort Bend and Waller counties, but opens its doors to all who wish to receive care without regard to income or circumstance.  

AccessHealth was incorporated on December 8, 1975. Funding to establish the WIC program was obtained in July 1976. In January 1977, AccessHealth became a funded agency of the United Way of Greater Houston. The Community Pediatric Clinic was established in 1980. Great Expectations, a comprehensive maternity program, was established in July 1984. The Community Adult Clinic was opened in August 1989. In 1992, AccessHealth was designated a federally qualified health center look-alike. 

AccessHealth is a Health Center that began providing medical services in a new clinic site in Stafford, Texas in September 1994. A forty-foot mobile clinic became operational in summer 2001. AccessHealth assumed the operations of the Health Alliance of Waller County, Inc. in March 2002, and expanded service delivery to Waller County through the mobile clinic. The mobile clinic is currently stationed at the United Way Service Center in Brookshire, Texas.  

AccessHealth became a federal grantee under the community health center program (FQHC) on June 1, 2002. Behavioral health services are provided by clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, and a psychiatrist providing consultation services and care oversight. A full-service dental clinic opened in AccessHealth’s Stafford Center location in February 2005. An electronic health records system was implemented in Spring 2009, putting AccessHealth on the forefront of technology for medical practices and enabling the organization to be better prepared for health care reform. 

AccessHealth opened a new primary care clinic in Missouri City (Fort Bend County) in July 2010 and a new WIC specialty clinic in Rosenberg (Fort Bend County) in June 2011. In October 2012, AccessHealth expanded WIC services to Austin, Waller and Colorado counties by adding sites in Bellville, Brookshire, Columbus, Eagle Lake, Katy, Prairie View, Sealy and Weimer.
