Our Home Remains Houston

CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare President, Les Cave, addresses recent news reports about CHRISTUS Health’s relocation. He assures Houstonians that CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare is not part of this move and is staying put in the Bayou City.

You may have seen the recent stories about CHRISTUS Health’s plans to consolidate system operations in the Dallas area.

I want to clarify that these plans do not include CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare or any of our programs in the Houston/Galveston area. CHRISTUS Foundation has cared for Houston’s most vulnerable residents for more than 40 years, and our work to serve our community will continue unchanged.

In fact, CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare is the midst of a major initiative focusing on improving access to primary care for Houston’s under served by adding new primary care clinics, expanding the capacity of our Healthy Living Mobile Clinic program, and increasing the number of School Based Clinics.  We are also enhancing the services Our Daily Bread provides to the homeless in Galveston. We look forward to keeping you informed about our progress with these initiatives, and our plans for the future.

  • Many Fronts in Fighting Obesity By Jane E. Body
    A close look at what and how Americans eat suggests that simply focusing on sugar will do little to quell the rising epidemic of obesity. This is a multifaceted problem with deep historical roots, and we are doing too little about many of its causes.
  • Avoiding Emergency Rooms By Jane E. Brody
    Experts report that more than half the problems patients bring to emergency rooms either do not or would not require hospital-based care if an alternative source were readily available.
