CHRISTUS Point of Light Clinic

I Know Point of Light Will Take Care of Me
“My Name is W, I am 64 years old and I am unable to work because of my health. I don’t qualify for Medicare, Medicaid or Disability. I basically fall between the cracks when it comes to access to healthcare. About three years ago, I found Point of Light Clinic, and since then, whenever I get into trouble with my health, I know Dr. Ricca will take care of me and keep me out of the hospital.”

Care for Those with Limited Income

CHRISTUS Point of Light Clinic is located in a medically under-served community 30 miles southeast of Houston in Dickinson, Texas. Led by family practitioner, Sister Ricca Dimalibot, M.D., and family nurse practitioner, Andres Gil, MSN, RN, NP-C, the Clinic opened in 1989 in response to a growing need for healthcare providers in a low-income area between Houston and Galveston. Twenty-eight years later, the Clinic continues to provide quality, affordable healthcare to thousands of men, women and children annually.
