Mobile Clinics

<p>Mobile Clinics</p>

*For patients & **For schools and community sites

Texas Children’s operates mobile clinics to provide trusted, high-quality medical services to children who may not have the access or opportunity to receive health care. Our fleet of mobile clinics travel all over the Greater Houston area to provide comprehensive health care to under-resourced children. The mobile clinics provide free care to children from newborn to 18 years of age. The clinics are open to the public; children do not have to attend the school where the clinic is parked to receive care.

  • We accept walk-in patients
  • Appointments are recommended.
  • Note that services are limited by staffing, supplies and time. Once our patient limit is reached daily, we cannot take any more walk-in patients.
  • Families are encouraged to arrive early.
  • Children MUST be accompanied by parent or legal guardian.
  • Families MUST come with all available copies of their immunization/vaccine/shot records including records from countries of origin

The mission of Texas Children's Mobile Clinic Program is to provide comprehensive health care and preventive education to underserved children in the Houston area.

Our goals are to:

  • Educate families about health insurance options
  • Explain to families the advantages of establishing a permanent medical home for their children
  • Increase immunization rates in target areas
  • Reduce inappropriate ER use by increasing access to health care in target areas
  • Promote health education and healthy living in the communities served
  • Provide a learning opportunity for Baylor College of Medicine medical students and residents with a focus on barriers in caring for underserved children and the importance of reducing health care disparities
