Medical & Dental Services
Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. owns and operates two primary care clinics at two locations – Wesley Health & Wellness Center and the Bishop Ernest T. Dixon, Jr. Clinic – in San Antonio, in addition to two School Based Health Center locations.
The clinics address the medical and dental needs of people who cannot afford health insurance. Services are provided on a sliding scale fee based upon ability to pay, household income and family size.
School Based Health Centers provide primary medical care, dental care and counseling to school-age children who attend Marion ISD or Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD and their siblings up to the age of 21. Additional health-related services include an annual dental sealant program for second graders in partnership with the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School.
Behavioral Health & Support Services
Case Management & Support Services are designed to help people who are uninsured, whose existing coverage does not provide mental health services benefits, are low-income and lack the money to pay for counseling services, or would not receive treatment any other way. Support services such as one-on-one counseling to help with issues of parenting, family relationships, depression and substance abuse and referral assistance is offered by trained, licensed professional counselors or licensed clinical social workers.
Counseling sessions are facilitated by trained, licensed professional counselors, licensed master social workers and licensed clinical social workers and are open to couples and entire families.
The first meeting is totally free and subsequent sessions are based on what each person is able to pay – no one is denied services based on ability to pay. An appointment must be set in advance to meet with a counselor. To set an appointment, contact a Methodist Healthcare Ministries facility most convenient to your family.
Referral assistance includes help with Medicaid and CHIP applications, and necessities including housing, utilities, clothing and food. Our Wesley Health & Wellness Center also offers an on-site food pantry to those in need.
