Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic is meeting an unmet need for affordable, accessible, culturally competent primary health care and support services. We serve a population that had long been disenfranchised from the social services of the city due to language and cultural differences. While the disenfranchisement has certainly improved since the organization's founding in 1972, there are still more people in need than there are comprehensive services to fill that need. We are also proud to serve as a one-stop-shop for the whole family offering pediatric care, adult care, obstetrics, behavioral healthcare, optometry, podiatry, diet and nutrition counseling, a WIC program, pediatric dentistry, and even a pharmacy. Additionally we offer innovative programming such as "Shared Medical Appointments"; group care and group education for patients with the same diagnosis - all family members welcome. Education is provided by a Promotora de Salud (Community Health Worker).

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community Health Clinic

For 50 years, LBU Community Clinic (LBU) has been providing comprehensive primary care services for thousands of underserved families residing in North Texas. LBU employs high quality staff, most of whom are bilingual in English and Spanish. In addition, the staff responds to patients needs with understanding and compassion.

At LBU, no one is turned away for the inability to pay. Patients pay on a sliding fee scale based on federal poverty level guidelines that are updated every year. The clinics also accept Medicaid, CHIP, Medicare and private insurance.

LBU operates from four state of the art facilities located in some of southwest Dallas most underserved communities. LBU is a health care home for 25,000 patients each year, and is ever-expanding to meet the needs of the communities served.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic's longstanding goal is to make an imprint on the community through greater involvement from leaders, staff and providers while providing quality health care that addresses the whole person.

Our strategic operational goals are:
1) To establish metrics on Board engagement, succession, diversity, and committee structure,
2) To add additional community health workers across LBUCC's 3 clinical sites,
3) To apply text messaging for coordination of care.
4) To establish a memorandum of agreement for an adult dental services,
5) To increase diversity among patients, the board, and community health workers, (Currently underway, see number 11.)
6) To develop an aggressive program to recruit and retain physicians,
7) To use technology to expand patient services,
8) To increase the number of group health care and health education programs by expanding our group room facilities,
9) To increase the number of group health care and health education programs by teaching more clinicians to work within the group health care model,
10) To open a new clinic site in south Dallas, an under-served, low income black community.

1) A Board-level committee was established to develop metrics on Board engagement, succession, diversity and committee structure.
2) Funding was solicited so that we may hire additional community health workers.
3) Adding text messaging capabilities is completed. The Care Messaging program has been integrated into our electronic health record program.
4) We established a memorandum of agreement for an adult dental services with Dental Health Programs in Dallas.
5) We hired a consulting firm to help us develop and implement a plan to increase our diversity organization-wide. We will also be opening a new clinic in a new primarily black neighborhood in January 2020.
6) To develop an aggressive program to recruit and retain physicians,
7) To use technology to expand patient services,
8) Funding was pledged by the Crystal Charity Ball and will be received in the Spring of 2020 to increase the number of group health care and health education programs by expanding our group room facilities and adding a Promotora de Salud,
9) To increase the number of group health care and health education programs by teaching more clinicians to work within the group health care model, (We now have trained an additional three clinicians to provide examinations during group health programs.)
10) The new LBU South will open in January 2020 in zip code 75232; a remarkably under-served, low income black community.

Los Barrios Unidos has been expanding since the doors opened in a portable trailer in 1972. The organization now boasts over 70,000 square feet of clinic space in West Dallas, Texas and Oak Cliff, Texas. Thanks to federal and private donations, a new 21,400 square foot facility opened in South Oak Cliff, Texas in October 2016. LBUCC received a highly competitive federal grant award in September 2019 to renovate and operate a new 7,000 square foot clinic space in zip code 75232, serving a remarkably under-served, low income black community.

We have prospered despite challenging economic downturns. We have been fortunate to have highly qualified leadership that can identify opportunities and act on those opportunities, identify needs and address those needs, and identify assets and grow those assets.

Our board of directors and leadership team take ownership of the organization's strategic goals and work tirelessly to ensure all goals are met and that all programs and services operate at the optimum level. Policies and procedures are in place and services are routinely evaluated.

The strategic goals were approved by the board of directors on February 22, 2018. As of this date, the organization has accomplished the following;

1) A Board-level committee was established to develop metrics on Board engagement, succession, diversity and committee structure.
2) Funding was solicited so that we may hire additional community health workers.
3) Adding text messaging capabilities is completed. The Care Messaging program has been integrated into our electronic health record program.
4) We established a memorandum of agreement for an adult dental services with Dental Health Programs in Dallas.
5) We hired a consulting firm to help us develop and implement a plan to increase our diversity organization-wide. We will also be opening a new clinic in a new primarily black neighborhood in January 2020.
6) To develop an aggressive program to recruit and retain physicians,
7) To use technology to expand patient services,
8) Funding was pledged by the Crystal Charity Ball and will be received in the Spring of 2020 to increase the number of group health care and health education programs by expanding our group room facilities and adding a Promotora de Salud,
9) To increase the number of group health care and health education programs by teaching more clinicians to work within the group health care model, (We now have trained an additional three clinicians to provide examinations during group health programs.)
10) The new LBU South will open in January 2020 in zip code 75232; a remarkably under-served, low income black community.

Of note, the organization routinely evaluates 16 clinical health outcomes goals for the effective prevention and/or management of diseases that most commonly impact our patient population. Some of these diseases include diabetes, cancer, hypertension, obesity and depression.
