What is Central Health?

Central Health, Travis County’s hospital district, is building a comprehensive, high-functioning healthcare system for residents with low income who need it most. The district’s Healthcare Equity Plan, adopted in early 2022, is guiding up to $700 million in investments to close the gaps that persist throughout the safety-net healthcare system – in primary care, specialty care, dental and behavioral health, hospital-based care, and post-acute transitions of care.
