For our future to be prosperous, our workforce and community must be
healthy. Through Harris County Public Health & Environmental Services
(HCPHES), the Harris County Hospital District, and a wide array of public,
private, and community healthcare providers, we are delivering quality
care to those who need it today and adding capacity for the years ahead.
Business continuity, government operations, and our
school districts are being secured against the threat of pandemic influenza
and proven, pandemic planning. In a recent RAND Corporation assessment
of systems designed to receive urgent case reports, HCPHES was among
an elite group of local healthcare departments to score 100% in a test
of its real-world performance.
In its 40th year, the Harris County Hospital District is the third largest
public health system in the country. A vital safety net that contributed
over $1.3 billion in charity care last year, the District carefully balances
its roles as a world-recognized leader in trauma care and as our region’s
primary provider of indigent care.
