A new Health Center of Southeast Texas clinic is opening this fall in Dayton, located on SH 321 next to Dayton Police Department. The Health Center of Southeast Texas is an established health care system with six current locations, serving the Cleveland, Livingston, Terrenos-Plum Grove, Liberty and Shepherd communities and providing compassionate, quality healthcare. The grand opening date will be announced as it approaches.
Health Center of Southeast Texas began in January 2006 to serve the primary healthcare needs of Southeast Texas.
“We realize that providing primary care services is much more than just providers and facilities. Quality of care, customer service, disease management, value and convenience are also key parts of the service delivery process. Since inception we have grown to the six locations above as well as a pharmacy exclusively for our Health Center patients,” according to an announcement from Health Center of Southeast Texas.
Health Center of Southeast Texas has received a Patient – Centered Medical Home accreditation. This designation means that the practice has undergone a transformation in quality and safety enhancement that has established a foundation for excellent patient care from birth to geriatric.
“We have an advanced primary care practice and experienced providers with excellent credentials. Encompassing all of our patients needs we have patient navigators focusing on social determinants of health to ensure patients receive the best care possible. A Patient Navigator advocates on their behalf, enhancing communication, coordinating timely treatment, and providing critical support and resources through all stages of their healthcare journey,” the announcement continues.
Health Center of Southeast Texas strives to be a patient’s first stop toward improved whole health, both mind and body as well as helping to contribute to long-term wellbeing.
This year HCSET added Dr. Ricardo Escobar, a doctor of psychiatry, to its practice. Integrating behavioral health in primary care is the gold standard for care. This innovative whole health approach is a team-based effort, supporting the work of the primary care physician.
“We are always looking to build a better patient experience with quality care that is personalized for you,” the announcement continues.
Same-day appointments and walk-ins are accepted with little to no wait time.
All major insurances are accepted, including Medicaid and Medicare as well as various health assistance programs based on income. The mission is to provide accessible, compassionate, culturally competent, and quality health care affordable for all, regardless of the ability to pay.
