The residents of Harris County have access to the Harris Health System (formerly known as the Harris County Hospital District). Harris Health System’s mission is to improve the community’s health by delivering high-quality healthcare to Harris County residents. While medical care is not free at their facilities, there is financial assistance for those who qualify. Based on your household income, you may qualify for partial financial assistance, on a sliding scale.
All Harris Health patients are asked to make a minimum payment at the time of their hospital or clinic visit, except for pediatric and prenatal care visits. Service fees do not apply to patients in the Healthcare for the Homeless Program or other plans. Insurance co-pays will be collected according to plan requirements.
Harris Health System helps patients recover from all types of injuries, illnesses and acute and chronic conditions. Inpatient and outpatient physical medicine and rehabilitation are offered at Quentin Mease Hospital, which was accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, receiving the highest quality rating for physical medicine and rehabilitation programs.
Patients undergo a comprehensive evaluation by a team of physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, neuropsychologists, speech-language pathologists, social workers and dietitians. Based on the results, functional outcomes and patient/caregiver goals are set.
The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Program provides specialized care for an array of disabilities, including stroke and cardiac conditions, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple traumas, amputations, orthopedic injuries and neuromuscular and neurological disorders.
CARE Prosthetics and Orthotics (City Brace Company) has been the Harris County contracted provider for orthotic and prosthetic services for over twenty years. Our Orthotists and Prosthetists attend the weekly clinics at Quentin Mease Hospital and work with their physicians and therapists to provide their patients with quality care.
