Hill Country Mission for Health is a medical ministry providing charitable primary healthcare for eligible low-income, uninsured, adults residing in Kendall Country and surrounding communities through strong community support.
We are a local non-profit charitable organization (501c3) supported by volunteers, private grants and community donations. Many churches, civic groups, businesses and individuals support this medical mission.
We are not associated with any particular religious organization but we are committed to providing a medical ministry of compassion that is respectful, confidential and sensitive to the physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual dimensions of health.
Local physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, translators and lay people volunteer their time and services. Our Board of Directors and our Advisory Board also donate their time. We have three part-time paid administrative staff.
We are committed to improving access to health care for adults between 18 and 64 years who are uninsured, cannot afford basic healthcare and are not eligible for government medical programs. Family income may not exceed 200% of the poverty level according to family size.
Our volunteer medical staff offers physicals, caoncer screening and treatment of chronic health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Medication assistance, discounted diagnostic testing and pro-bono specialist consultants are available as medically indicated.
