About Central Health
Empowering Communities with Care
Vision: Central Texas is a model healthy community.
Mission: By caring for those who need it most, Central Health improves the health of our community.
Central Health is the public hospital district empowering communities with care by building a better healthcare system, serving low-income Travis County residents. The healthcare district is also indebted to the taxpayers of Travis County—who fund the majority of Central Health’s budget—to operate in a fiscally responsible and transparent manner.
Central Health is a separate political subdivision of the State of Texas created in 2004 by a vote of Travis County residents. The boundaries of its health care service area and taxing jurisdiction are contiguous with Travis County.
In early 2022, Central Health adopted a Healthcare Equity Plan which will guide the immediate and long-term work of the hospital district to improve health and reduce inequities for Travis County’s low-income population.
The plan identifies four strategic imperatives: Access & Capacity, Care Coordination, Member Engagement, and System of Care.Get Health Coverage with MAP and MAP BASIC
