CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinic

Vehicles for Care,

CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinics fill a healthcare void by providing direct access for men, women and children that might otherwise remain excluded from care. The Mobile Clinics reach medically under-served and often hard-to-reach segments of the population, many of whom go undiagnosed for major health problems until health issues become critical.

Two Mobile Clinics Deliver Care Virtually Anywhere

Working with a generous individual and CHRISTUS Corporate Partner, Allegiance Bank, CHRISTUS Foundation added a second Healthy Living Mobile Clinic. The new Healthy Living Mobile Clinic will immediately head out into the community and begin caring for the under-served throughout greater Houston.

Clinic Providers

Sister Theresa earned a Bachelor of Art at University of St. Thomas, and taught Math and Latin at Incarnate Word Academy in Houston for seven years.  Coming from a family of nurses, Sister Theresa decided she would return to school and received an Associate Degree in Nursing from San Jacinto College.

Sr. Theresa worked on the Medical and Surgical floor at St Joseph hospital for 15 years. With the sale of the hospital, Sr. Theresa transferred to CHRISTUS Healthy Living Mobile Clinic. Repeatedly visiting under-served neighborhoods to help patients, often the elderly, monitor chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension.

“Having been with the mobile unit for 11 years now I have seen many changes and much growth in the program. My favorite part of my job is helping patients, especially the uninsured, detect that they have one of the “silent killers” like hypertension and diabetes. And assisting my patients to one of our clinics that they can use as a medical home to be treated.”
