Community Benefit Programs
Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Programs are designed to provide care for uninsured and underinsured; to reach those Houstonians needing low cost care; to support the existing infrastructure of non-profit clinics and FQHCs; to close the mental health gap in mental and behavioral care services; and to educate individuals and their families on how to access the services needed by and available to them. Strategically, Memorial Hermann is focusing upstream on health issues by addressing the social determinants of health--specifically access, nutrition, exercise and psychological well-being--and continuing to build the web of partnerships across Houston that will transform population health. Ongoing collaborators to address Houston’s health and social issues and improve its well-being include Gateway to Care, area school districts, the Clinton Foundation, Healthy Living Matters, the Build Health Challenge, Pasadena Vibrant Community, the Houston Food Bank, Hunger Free Texans, Texas Health Institute, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health, the YMCA, federally qualified health centers and private not-for-profit clinics, social service agencies, institutes of higher education, and professional associations.
