East Austin Health Clinic, 211 Comal St., reopened in October, offering women's health services and pediatric care.
Practice Administrator Sarah Murga said the clinic has been seeing more than 1,000 patients a month since it reopened its doors and that there is a big need for the services.
"We serve the indigent, and there are a lot of people needing, especially in this area, [for] women's health and [obstetrics]," Murga said.
The clinic, which is part of CommUnity Care —an organization consisting of multiple clinics in the Austin area—has a staff of 20 employees and offers centering groups in parenting and pregnancy in which patients are able to engage in their care and generate support from the group.
Murga said that as the clinic moves forward, it is looking for ways to increase the number of patients it is able to serve and the hours of operation.
"We added a new nurse practitioner, so hopefully we'll be able to increase and see more patients within our community," Murga said.
