As one of Houston’s longstanding institutional leaders, Texas Children’s recognizes that often health needs are not simply about providing cures and care for physical maladies, particularly when working with underserved communities. Rather, these are deeply intertwined with numerous social determinants of health (educational, psychosocial, environmental and economic concerns) that may frequently be more challenging to address than illness alone.
This realization has led us to approach Community Benefit planning in a highly collaborative manner. While Texas Children’s is a renowned leader in health care, other institutions and groups share additional expertise in resolving other aspects in the complex issue of community health and well being.
