Community Health Clinic, a nonprofit health care clinic serving Collin County, announced its upcoming relocation to a medical suite near the Medical City McKinney campus. The larger space will accommodate the increased demand for health care services among low-income, uninsured families of Collin County, according to a clinic news release.

Community Health Clinic moved to 4510 Medical Center Drive, Ste. 204, McKinney, on July 1.


With the relocation comes an expansion of the clinic’s services, such as telemedicine appointments for uninsured patients’ acute and chronic health care needs, the news release stated.

“Chronic disease management lends itself well to a telemedicine model in many cases, as do acute care needs,” said Gini Holter, a nurse practitioner and clinic board member, in a news release. “As we make the move to a new location, we’ll have more opportunities to serve our patients as conveniently and safely as possible in the uncertain context of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

CHC’s volunteer staff includes five physicians of varying specialties, 12 nurse practitioners, a physical therapist and a dietician. All nurses are volunteers, and when front office staff and interpreters are added, CHC has over 60 volunteers. CHC also partners with imaging and laboratory providers and prescription assistance programs to provide these essential services at no cost to patients. 972-547-0606. www.chc-mckinney.com
