About Us


Founded in 2004 by a vote of Travis County residents, Central Health is here to make our community stronger by investing in access to health care for our most vulnerable residents. We are the local public entity that connects low-income Travis County residents to high-quality, cost-effective health care.

By eliminating health disparities and improving safety-net healthcare delivery, we are transforming Travis County into a model healthy community.


Central Health is a separate political subdivision of the State of Texas and is not a part of Travis County Government. The boundaries of our healthcare service area are contiguous with Travis County.


Central Health’s efforts are guided by a Strategic Plan. The plan is reviewed and revised annually by the Central Health staff and Board of Managers in order to address the ever-changing challenges of the regional healthcare environment.
