Montrose Location Now Taking Appointments: Offers Expanded Services and Care
Effective September 12, 2011, Legacy Community Health Services (Legacy) will begin seeing patients in its new, state-of-the-art 40,000- square foot clinic located at 1415 California, in the heart of Houston’s Montrose neighborhood. The medical facility will house eight specialty clinics, ten support programs, four education based community programs and a pharmacy. The new facility will begin servicing patients on September 12, nearly a month before its official grand opening on October 16. To schedule an appointment, call 713-830-3000.
Legacy Montrose Clinic will bring together two of Legacy’s current clinic locations under one roof, allowing the community to access primary and behavioral healthcare services, eye care, wellness services, a gym and new dental care all at one convenient location.
The new facility also offers pediatrics, pediatric behavioral health, family planning, HIV/STD testing and counseling, HIV specialty care, and an array of support programs for people living with HIV/AIDS.
“There is an ever widening gap for access to quality healthcare,” said Katy Caldwell, executive director of Legacy Community Health Services. “Legacy Montrose Clinic will help close the gap by offering expanded services, such as pediatrics, dental and behavioral health, to this underserved community.”
Centrally located just minutes from downtown, Midtown and the Texas Medical Center, the four-story building in Montrose offers healthcare services for everyone, offering sliding-fee scales for people with low income. The not-for-profit organization accepts Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP and most health insurance plans.
On September 12, three current Legacy locations will cease operations as services permanently move to the new facility:
· Legacy Community Health Center, 215 Westheimer, Houston, Texas 77006
· Frost Eye Clinic & Body Positive Wellness Services and Human Resources, 3311 Richmond, Suite 100, and Administration, 3311 Richmond, Suite 230, Houston, Texas 77098

Additionally, the community is invited to help Legacy Montrose Clinic celebrate its grand opening with a family fun day on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2011 from 2 – 5 p.m. at 1415 California Street. Free drinks and food will be served. There will be activities for all ages such as a balloon artist, bounce house and free health screenings including blood pressure and HIV testing.
