Central Health is here to make our community stronger by investing in access to health care for our most vulnerable residents. Central Health is the local public entity that connects low income Travis County residents to high-quality, cost-effective health care. Central Health works with a network of health care partners like the Community Care Collaborative, the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin, and Seton Healthcare Family to eliminate health disparities and improve safety net health care delivery as we transform Travis County into a model healthy community. Central Health was created by a vote of Travis County residents on May 15, 2004.For more information, please visit www.centralhealth.net
