About

Mission – Vecino Health Center’s mission is to make quality healthcare accessible and sustainable to the medically underserved.

Vision – We envision a day when the term “medically underserved” does not apply anywhere in Houston.

This commitment to providing life-changing access to medical, dental, and behavioral health services helps solve one of Houston’s most urgent issues while impacting people’s lives and the city’s bottom line.
