How to get a new Watson clinic in your neighborhood
- by admin
A new clinic has opened in a small Houston suburb, providing a free service to those who have fallen behind in their disability payments.
The new Watson Clinic in South Houston is operated by Watson Health Care, the Houston-based healthcare company that has been trying to improve the lives of people with mental illness and substance abuse issues.
The clinic will offer free tests, counseling, case management and referrals to a wide range of services, said Amanda Stoddart, Watson Health CEO.
The Watson clinic is not open to the public.
The Austin, Texas-based company has a network of clinics across the country, and its latest location is in Austin, where it opened a similar clinic earlier this year.
Watson Health Care has been expanding its reach and reaching out to the community through social media, Stoddard said.
Wise and compassionate care is what Watson Healthcare stands for.
That is what we’re all about.
We care about our clients.
We want to make a difference in their lives.
We are always looking for ways to improve our services, including the Watson Clinic, Stodart said.
We have a long history of doing that.
We have been doing it for decades, and we will continue to do that.
“The Watson Clinic will offer a range of mental health services including crisis intervention, assessment and treatment, crisis management, substance abuse counseling, substance use management and job training.
The clinic also provides referrals to other services and will be accepting money to pay for prescriptions, dental care and other necessities.
The company will have a full-time staff of about 50.
The first clinic opened in Houston in February, with more than 300 people receiving services, according to the company.
The Houston-area Watson Clinic received nearly $4 million in state funding to help open the first clinic in Texas.
The program is designed to be affordable for low-income residents and people with disabilities, and Watson Health has expanded it to include areas of the city and surrounding area.
The city of Houston is currently working with the company to set up a second clinic in the same area, Studdart said, noting that the project is still in the early stages.
