About Us    /   What we do

Today, CommUnityCare provides services at 19+ locations in Travis County. Each year, our health centers provide approximately 320,000 medical and dental patient appointments. This number represents more than 88,000 individual patients. CommUnityCare provides outpatient primary healthcare, dental care, limited specialty care, lab, radiology including mammography, a full service pharmacy, and behavioral health services. We also provide HIV/AIDS treatment at our David Powell Clinic, and care for the homeless with a location at the ARCH, along with Street Medicine teams that go out in the community to provide primary care to the homeless. These services are provided to all Travis County residents including those whose incomes and lack of private health insurance qualify them for enrollment. Two of our locations, Hancock and William Cannon, were designed to expand health care access by providing walk-in services to existing CUC patients. These clinics offer extended hours and weekend care. Many of our providers speak several languages and we also utilize a telephone medical translation service for less common foreign languages. That means we serve patients from all over the world. 

 

What We Offer

We are exclusively an out-patient practice and other than 2 locations, there are very few Saturday shifts. Our providers do not have to pay for malpractice insurance as they are covered by the Federal Tort Claims Act. Our providers receive up to two weeks off for CME as well as very generous PTO. We offer excellent benefits which start on the first day of the month following employment.  Talented site leadership consisting of a Practice Administrator, Clinic Lead, and Nurse Manager handle all the administrative and operational issues for you so you can focus on patient care. You will be part of a physician practice with over 100 providers who specialize in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, dentistry as well as behavioral health and more.
