About Us

Spring Branch Community Health Center (SBCHC) is a private, non-profit community health center providing quality, affordable healthcare services to the underserved and uninsured communities of Spring Branch and West Houston.

SBCHC was developed to reduce area health disparities by creating a neighborhood-based health center and by providing comprehensive primary health care services that are culturally competent, linguistically appropriate and client-driven in a location easily accessible to public transportation.

SBCHC was formed in 2003 and began providing comprehensive health care services to indigent and low-income patients in the Spring Branch community in May 2004. Designated as a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in September 2005, SBCHC offers medical care, mental health, dental care to both children and adults, no matter what your income.


To increase the number of healthy families in our community by providing high quality, comprehensive health services.


To champion community wellness by providing integrated health services to all.


Healthy Families. Healthy Community.
