Conroe is a beautiful suburban Houston community of 45,000 people nestled near the “piney woods” of East Texas. It is located along Interstate 45 about 40 miles north of downtown Houston. Conroe is adjacent to The Woodlands, which provides a multitude of housing and employment opportunities for your family. Recreational opportunities for you and your family abound with Lake Conroe, numerous beautiful golf courses, national parks with hiking/biking, and the proximity of the beach. Its proximity to Houston provides all the advantages of “big city” life without the hassle. FQHCs also know as community health centers are local, non-profit or public entity, community owned health care providers serving low-income and medially underserved communities.

FQHCs provide high-quality, affordable primary care and preventative services to populations who, even if insured, remain isolated from traditional forms of medical care because of where they live, who they are, the language they speak, and their high levels of complex health care needs. Although FQHCs have a broad prevention-based perspective on many health problems, they are much like private medical and dental practices, staffed by physicians, dentists, nurses and other health care professionals. They differ however, by the broader range of services provided such as social services, transportation, translation services, health education, and their management structure. In order to maximize limited resources, these private, nonprofit community practices have developed community linkages with specialty providers, local health departments, hospitals, nursing homes, pharmacists, and other community organizations to ensure services are coordinated and eliminate duplication of effort. Although some services may not be available on-site, the health center does coordinate care and referrals to other providers in a way that assures comprehensive and convenient "one-stop caring" for its patients. In 2004, Community Health Centers cared for 562,065 Texans regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay.
