The mission of CitySquare’s health programs is to improve access to care and the most critical health needs facing South Dallas’ residents. At CitySquare, we believe health is determined as much or more by one’s social environment as by one’s genetics. We understand that social determinants of health, conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age, are critical and affect a wide range of health, functional, and quality-of-life outcomes.
CitySquare Community Clinic
Since 1998, the CitySquare Community Clinic has served adults and children by providing a permanent medical home for the uninsured in our community. Through preventative screenings, a collaborative care team approach, and innovative community-based practices, the CitySquare Community Clinic became recognized in 2012 as a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home – the highest level attainable.
