Coastal Health and Wellness opens school based clinic in TCISD As students, teachers and parents continue wrapping up last-minute back-to-school preparations, Coastal Health and Wellness opened its first school-based health clinic Tuesday (8/8/2023) with a grand opening celebration and a ribbon cutting with the Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce. The clinic, which is located at 1805 13th Avenue North, is next to the Calvin Vincent Early Childhood Center. Ami Cotharn, the chief operating officer for Coastal Health and Wellness, said the clinic will provide low cost primary care services to Texas City ISD students in addition to referrals for dental work. Another important service the clinic provides, Cotharn said, is mental health and substance abuse counseling for students who may be dealing with issues in those areas. Cotharn said CHW officials hope the partnership with TCISD is the first of many in the future with Galveston County school districts to provide access to medical services for students. Galveston ISD has a school-based clinic through a partnership with UTMB Health and Dickinson ISD, in partnership with Houston Physicians Group, offers a clinic at the high school. i45NOW in partnership with the Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce, in support of local businesses, produces business profiles to promote new members.
