The Jefferson service area encompasses Chambers, Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Liberty, Newton, Orange, Polk, San Jacinto, Tyler and Walker.
We host events for the community such as:

In addition, Texas Children’s Health Plan addressed the shortage of primary care medical needs for the Medicaid and CHIP populations by designing two state-of-the-art facilities called The Center for Children and Women. The Center for Children and Women is a patient and family-centered medical home for Texas Children’s Health Plan members.
The Center for Children and Women is located in the Greenspoint area, with a second location in Southwest Houston. The facilities offer in-house services such as behavioral health, optometry, radiology, speech therapy, and dentistry. The Center for Children and Women is open 7 days a week with extended hours. Patients and families can have all their medical needs met on the same and in the same location, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.
