An Unprecedented Collaboration
A collaboration of Houston’s historic San José Clinic, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, and CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare, the Moran Health Center/John S. Dunn Integrated Care Building opened in Houston’s Midtown on February 6, 2010.
Care for Houston’s Uninsured
A major, multi-service health complex, “Moran Center” offers primary and specialized medical services, dental care, mental-health counseling and literacy-education programs to those who often have the greatest needs.
Under one roof, three pioneering faith-based nonprofit organizations provide Houston’s uninsured with the compassionate healing and healthcare they need not only to fight disease and repair injuries, but to live smart and stay healthy. Regardless of faith, all in need are welcomed out of darkness by gentle hands, open hearts and the glory of Christ’s healing light.
Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, founded in 1943, provides Moran Health Center clients a wide range of social services, including –
- Immigration and refugee assistance
- Adoption and foster care
- Assistance for pregnant adolescents and young adults
- Individual, group, family and couples counseling
- Food and basic needs assistance
- Senior services
- Housing assistance
- AIDS ministry
San José Clinic
Founded in 1922, San José Clinic ranks among the nation’s oldest charity clinics in continuous operation. For those without insurance, the clinic is a vital link to primary and specialty care in these areas and more –
- Medical and dental care
- Internal medicine
- Diabetes education
- Family practice
- Ear, nose and throat
Situated at the intersection of Fannin and McGowen streets, one block east of the Main Street Metro Rail and near several bus routes, the Moran Health Center/John S. Dunn Integrated Care Building offers visitors easy access by both public and private means. The location offers yet another benefit, as the centrally positioned Midtown property proves to be the ideal headquarters for the CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinics – rolling medical facilities that serve thousands annually throughout Houston’s impoverished and underserved neighborhoods.
