About Us

Nonprofit, Faith-Based Health Care Facility

Our Mission:

To show and share the love of Jesus Christ to the Corpus Christi community by providing holistic, affordable, and quality health care services. We recognize that Jesus Christ is Our Mission, Vision, and History the true healer of individuals and their communities and the source of our ability to serve.

Our Vision:

Amistad Community Health Center strives to provide the underserved healthcare population in the Corpus Christi community with the highest quality medical care available in the spirit and strength of Jesus Christ.

 We foresee a future that includes being the place of choice for comprehensive health care, meeting the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the community, and impacting the lives of those around us through the love and actions of Christ.

Our History:

Amistad Community Health Center was founded in 2005 as a non-profit, faith-based organization aimed to address the growing number of community members lacking health insurance, a primary care provider, and a place to receive affordable, quality medical attention. Our center is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) which is a Federal designation assigned to non-profit or public health care organizations that serve predominantly uninsured or underserved populations and are located in or serving a designated Medically Underserved Area/Population (MUA/P). We are an FTCA deemed facility. As an FQHC, Amistad is expected to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services for the patients we serve. We also provide services to all persons regardless of their ability to pay by charging for services on a sliding fee scale based on a patient’s family size and income. Amistad provides services to people in every stage of the life cycle.

    Just a little note about the Amistad Community Health Center. Not the Center itself, but the people that are Amistad. Employees from the Administrators and Receptionists to the Nurses and Doctors. I could not say anything about everyone there, more important than, “I BELIEVE THEY TRULY CARE ” Hi Gail. Sincerely, Robert J. Seese
