HOPE Clinic Receives $300,000 Grant from Kresge Foundation to Strengthen Service Capacity


BY Alex Wang [ January 18, 2010 at 18:47:53 ]

Houston, TX-Asian American Health Coalition of Greater Houston (AAHC)-HOPE Clinic is one of the recipients of Kresge Foundation Health Program two year grant to expand service capacity of the community health center.

The Kresge Foundation’s Health Program seeks to influence and assist in the creation of healthy living environments for disadvantaged populations by working to improve the natural, built and social aspects of their communities.

The Asian American Health Coalition of Houston (AAHC), Inc., established the HOPE Clinic in 2002 with the mission “to improve the health of residents in greater Houston through culturally and linguistically appropriate services.” In particular HOPE Clinic serves the uninsured, underinsured, those with limited English proficiency, and the low-income through services offered in Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean and Spanish. Today HOPE Clinic is a professionally staffed and full-time Federally Qualified Community Health Center (FQHC) Look-Alike, receiving its designation in November 2008. HOPE Clinic offers primary and preventive services such: as well child; adult physicals; well women screenings; and vaccination.

The HOPE Clinic has experienced unprecedented growth within the last 2 years. In 2008, the clinic experienced a 65% increase in new patient volume and 38% growth in the number of patient encounters over 2007, largely due to the economy and to the impact of Ike on the local businesses. In 2009, the clinic experienced a 35% increase in numbers of patient encounters over 2008. The clinic’s current patient demographic is 48% Asian, 39% Hispanic and 9% African American.

“Support from the Kresge Foundation will be essential in meeting the exponential growth in the Southwest Houston community,” said Dr. Andrea Caracostis, CEO of HOPE Clinic. “HOPE Clinic will be able to provide affordable quality care services to an additional 3,000 patients per year and continue working towards the elimination of health care disparities.”
