Get Care Program

If you don’t have health insurance, Vecino Health Centers has your back.

I love this place. When I wasn’t insured, this clinic saved me, and when I was insured I continued to attend this clinic…I refer everyone to this place.

Patient comment from

2021 Patient Satisfaction Survey

Vecino Health Center’s Get Care program removes the barriers that can get in the way of receiving regular health care. 

We care about your health, not your employment or immigration status. Your personal information is private.

Patients enrolled in the Get Care program can receive medical and counseling services through telehealth or at Vecino’s clinics, as well as in-clinic dental care, without worrying about how much it’s going to cost.

Once enrolled, fees for care are established on a sliding scale, based on your current financial situation.

What’s more, you may be eligible for medical and other health coverage, but knowing your options can be very challenging. We’ll help you understand and apply for the benefits that are available to you.

Get Care and Stay Well!

We care about your health. It’s especially important to make it a priority during these uncertain times of COVID-19. There’s no reason to delay your health care if you don’t have insurance, a job, or immigration documents.

Telehealth is when you use digital and communications technology – like computers, smartphones, or telephones – to access health care services.

During a telehealth appointment, you will be able to talk to doctor, nurse, counselor, or other provider on your phone, smartphone, tablet, or computer about any health concerns you may be having. Based on your symptoms and your medical history, your provider can prescribe medications, recommend at-home treatments, or ask you to come to the clinic for further examination.

Prenatal care at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Clinic

What is prenatal care?

Prenatal care is the health care you get while you are pregnant. Take care of yourself and your baby by:

  • Getting early prenatal care. If you know you’re pregnant, or think you might be, call 713-674-3326 to schedule a visit.
  • Getting regular prenatal care. Your doctors will schedule you for many checkups over the course of your pregnancy. Don’t miss any — they are all important.
  • Following your doctor’s advice.

Dr. Magdalena Brooks joins Vecino Health Centers to lead prenatal care

If Dr. Magdalena Brooks had just one message for young women as they step into adulthood, it would be this: “Good care, even before getting pregnant, is really important. Caring for yourself before pregnancy minimizes the risk for complications.”  

A native speaker of both Spanish and English, Dr. Magdalena Brooks brings expertise in prenatal care to Vecino Health Centers

Dr. Brooks is a native speaker of both Spanish and English and an expert in prenatal care and women’s health. She joins Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Clinic to increase the options for patients who want prenatal care right at the clinic.

An accomplished family medicine practitioner and obstetrician, Dr. Brooks served most recently as Director of Women’s Health and Maternity Care and Faculty Physician for Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program/Memorial Hermann Hospital System.  

More services for pregnancy and birth now at Vecino’s Denver Harbor Family Clinic 

Thanks to Dr. Brooks’ leadership, most patients can now get all of their prenatal care right at Denver Harbor Family Clinic. Ultrasounds are available in-house, and many patients with higher-risk pregnancies can continue their care at the clinic. Patients needing c-sections can now also continue their prenatal care at Denver Harbor.

After pregnancy, patients can also get help with postpartum depression and other postpartum care through behavioral health services at the clinic.

Vecino’s Denver Harbor Clinic is now accepting new and existing patients for family planning, pregnancy, and postpartum care. To schedule an appointment with Vecino’s Prenatal Services call 713-674-3326.
