Defining Legacy

Legacy’s team of health care professionals—physicians, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, social workers, nutritionists, and nurses—tailor services to meet the needs of each patient regardless of age, sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability to pay. For more than 30 years, this Houston area institution has been treating marginalized, indigent, and under-served Texans through a holistic approach to health care that promotes optimal health and wellness.
