North Texas Area Community Health Centers Dedicates The Morris Foundation Building
North Texas Area Community Health Centers (NTACHC) officially dedicated the Northside Community Health Center and renamed it The Morris Foundation Building, thanks to the $1 million cornerstone grant.
This gift was part of a $15.3 million capital campaign, led by U.S. Representative Kay Granger, to build a new 34,000-square-foot Northside Community Health Center to better serve the medically underserved area. Primary care services include adult care, pediatric care, women’s health, and behavioral health, along with pharmacy, labs, diabetes management, health education and wellness.
In 2018, the Northside Community Health Center opened. The new Center was welcomed by the Northside community, Fort Worth and Tarrant County as it offered an environment that is family-friendly, hospitality focused, and promotes patient wellness. NTACHC currently sees approximately 13,000 individuals per year with the capacity to see an additional 7,000 in its new facilities.
Todd Liles, The Morris Foundation’s executive director and trustee, said, “We are proud of our partnership with North Texas Area Community Health Centers in support of their mission to improve health and wellness by offering accessible, compassionate and quality healthcare services for all patients. The Foundation invests in programs that meet the educational, health and social services of the vulnerable, and this facility aligns well with being able to serve the community.”
Dr. Carlos Morales, NTACHC board president, said, “At North Texas Area Community Health Centers (NTACHC), our patients are some of the most vulnerable in Tarrant County. We are grateful for the collaboration with The Morris Foundation as they understand the challenges our patients face to maintain their health and wellness. We are honored to have The Morris Foundation name on the Northside Center building as a symbol of not only our partnership but the commitment to the underserved patients of NTACHC.”
