The GCHC is one of the first Medicaid 1115 Waiver projects in North Texas. The clinic is a joint venture between Texoma Medical Center in Denison and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-WNJ in Sherman. The clinic is made possible by the collaboration of Grayson County, Texoma Health Foundation and Wilson N. Jones Foundation.


The Grayson County Health Clinic will provide a primary-care medical home to uninsured, underinsured and underserved residents of Grayson County. The intent of this project is not only to be the primary-care home for these residents, but to also decrease non-emergency visits to the emergency rooms of Texoma Medical Center and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-WNJ.


The clinic will be the primary-care medical home for the Grayson County Indigent Health recipients that have previously received their medical care from various primary care providers and clinics. Uninsured patients will be seen on a sliding fee scale. The sliding fee scale will be determined based on the current year’s Federal Poverty Level.


Because diabetes, obesity and heart disease are the primary identified issues in Grayson County, the Clinic will be monitoring and reporting outcomes on the management of a patient’s cholesterol levels.
