Christ Clinic Katy set for move to new facility
Christ Clinic Katy is making a tremendous impact on the Katy area community, and that impact is soon to expand. The organization, which provides quality healthcare to those that are uninsured or underinsured, has announced plans to move into a larger facility located on Kingsland Boulevard in the first quarter of 2016.
Currently located in downtown Katy, Christ Clinic began as a small organization operating out of a church gymnasium one night a week to provide medical services to those in need. The organization has grown dramatically over the past 15 years. In 2015 alone, the clinic is on pace to almost double patients seen and patient visits from 2014. Thus far this year it has seen 3,200 patients and had 6,900 patient visits.
