History

The City of Garland Health Department’s Clinical Services division offers services to Garland’s most vulnerable citizens. Established in 1979, Clinical Services, located at 206 Carver Drive, houses four full-time registered nurses, provides immunizations, well child exams, travel vaccines, tuberculosis screening, communicable disease prevention, and community health education to area residents. Clinic staff also assists other Garland clinics in providing free vaccines to uninsured/underinsured children. 

Clinical Services was honored in 2010 by the Garland Health Department as the Division of the Year for becoming completely self-funded while meeting the ever-increasing demands of providing low-cost quality clinical care. The clinic was awarded an expanded grant from the Texas Department of State Health Services in 2009 which, along with a grant from Health Facilities Development Corporation, has allowed for an increase in staff and services. In addition to funding from grants, the division generates enough revenue to operate as a completely self-funded department.
