In only a few short years, Lone Star Circle of Care has grown from one locally-focused clinic established in Georgetown in 2002 to a federally qualified community health center with 25+ community clinics serving Central Texas. We provided nearly 300,000 visits for medically underserved adults and children in 2011.
Were it not for our clinics, adults and children without health insurance would not have access to what we call a person-centered, behaviorally enhanced health care home, which includes primary care, dental, integrated mental health, women’s health services, and low cost medications. As long as there are medically disenfranchised and underserved people and a need for the services we provide, Lone Star Circle of Care will continue the pursuit of our mission—bringing high quality, affordable health care to those in need.
By leveraging public health care dollars with investments from hospitals and charitable foundations and community support, LSCC is addressing health disparities in the population and restoring balance in the realm of health care access. This health center is a Health Center Program grantee under 42 U.S.C. 254b, and a deemed Public Health Service employee under 42 U.S.C. 233(g)-(n).
