About This Collaboration
Together, UT Health Austin and Central Health aim to increase access to care and improve care delivery for everyone in Travis County regardless of insurance status. Our goal is to improve the health of the community by helping people live healthier lives.
At UT Health Austin, our experienced healthcare professionals deliver personalized, whole-person care of uncompromising quality and treat each patient as an individual with unique circumstances, priorities, and beliefs. Where possible, we have redesigned the care model to enable patients to see multiple specialists during the same visit depending on their specific health needs. This multidisciplinary, coordinated care model makes it easier for you to get the care you need without having to make multiple trips to various locations. Our care teams include medical professionals, medical school learners, and researchers, who are all part of the integrated mission of transforming healthcare delivery and redesigning the academic health environment to better serve society.
We collaborate with our colleagues at the Dell Medical School and The University of Texas at Austin to utilize the latest research, diagnostic, and treatment techniques, allowing us to provide you with an unparalleled quality of care. We also collaborate closely with referring physicians and other partners in the community to schedule and coordinate any additional care services you may need.
