Although it is located at a school, the center is open to everyone in the community. It’s a satellite clinic under the Community Healthcare Center, a federally qualified health center located at 200 Martin Luther King, Jr.
The new center has two healthcare providers who see patients Monday through Friday, along with seven support staff members. Ralph O. Harvey III, who has been involved in the community health effort here since its beginnings in the early 1990s, raised the money to bring the health center site into reality
The center’s CEO, Allen Patterson, brought the idea of a school-based clinic idea to his board of directors. Michael Kuhrt, WFISD Superintendent of Schools, and the WFISD School Board approved the plan and donated the land. For his work, the Zundy center was dedicated to Harvey.
The center actually opened in August, but the dedication was postponed due to COVID-19. The facility takes Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, STAR, STAR+Plus, STAR Kids, BCBS, TRICARE and most private insurances. It also offers a sliding scale discount to patients based on family size and income.
