Delivering Health Care Access to Texans Where They Are

Graphic says "Your location, ethnicity or occupation should not determine your access to quality health care."

Health disparities exist all around us.

  • They exist for the woman working two jobs who delivers a preterm baby after complications caused by chronic stress.
  • The Texas farmer whose high blood pressure goes undetected because he can’t drive two hours to the nearest doctor.
  • The young boy suffering life-threatening asthma attacks and living with a parent who smokes.
  • The family besieged by diabetes caused by a diet of corner store food and soda.

These are all different people living in different places and facing different problems. Every Texan has the chance to make a difference in the lives of those around them. Each day we make a choice to directly impact others. Help HSC make a difference in the lives of your fellow Texans. 


HSC launched the Health Disparities Campaign raising awareness and supporting innovative programs

Asthma 411

Asthma 411 breaks down barriers across Tarrant County by providing medication, intervention, and support in local schools.

Through valued community partnerships, HSC is able to deliver medicine and teach students and parents how to prevent asthma attacks.

This program reduces EMS calls related to asthma at schools, improves attendance in school for children with asthma, and helps children breathe easier.

Asthma is the most chronic childhood illness, and it disproportionately affects children in underserved communities.

HSC needs private donations to continue this program and expand to the rural school districts of Parker County.

SaferCare Texas

The Patient Safety Initiative is actively going to promote best practices in the health care setting, and ensure the safety of the lives of your fellow Texans.

It is believed that medical errors cause more deaths than HIV, Malaria, and Tuberculosis combined.

This newly launched public-private partnership will work with health care clinics across Texas addressing the root cause of medial errors.

Together we will deliver the best care possible to patients in both rural and urban settings.

With investments from donors, HSC will be able to deliver the Patient Safety Initiative and decrease medical errors in medical clinics across Texas.
