San José Clinic: Serving Houston for 98 years, and going strong


The San José Clinic has been tucked into the middle of Houston for 98 years, serving more than 4,000 uninsured patients each year, with a small staff and a dedicated crew of volunteers. They are a shining example of how to build healthy communities.

For many residents of Harris County, getting sick can be a real financial crisis yet US News & World Report ranks Harris County among the top 30 counties in Texas for population health.

COVID-19 has exposed a lot of fault lines and disparities across the country, as well as some unforeseen strengths. With help from the CVS Health Foundation, the San José Clinic was quick to adapt — turning their pharmacy into a drive-thru, launching telehealth services, and more. In addition to the people featured in the video, our podcast (below) provides in-depth interviews with Maureen Sanders, President and CEO; Pharmacy Director Adlia Eibed; and Randall Flores, who spent a year with San José Clinic for his clinical pharmacy residency.
