HDHHS reopens Riverside Health Center

The Houston Department of Health and Human Services (HDHHS) has reopened Riverside Health Center, a facility providing preventive health services to residents of the Third Ward area.

The health center, located at 3315 Delano, provides child immunizations, family planning and maternity care on Mondays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Tuesdays to Fridays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Clients may call 713-831-9600 for more information or 713-794-9999 to schedule an appointment.

HDHHS provided health services out of its nearby Third Ward Multi-Service Center for more than two years while crews repaired Riverside’s foundation and replaced a leaking roof.

HDHHS is working on collaborations with other agencies to eventually set up primary care services and a dialysis unit at Riverside.
