EHC Logo Horz

Bryan, TX – CHI St. Joseph Health recently signed an agreement
with the City of College Station to open a non-urgent care health clinic for about 1,700 city employees, dependents over the age of 5, and retirees enrolled in the city’s group insurance plans.

Located in the CHI St. Joseph Health South College Station Medical Office Building at 2803 Earl Rudder Freeway, the City of College Station Employee Health Clinic is scheduled to open this fall. Clinic staff will include an advanced practice clinician, a licensed vocational nurse, a certified nurse assistant/medical assistant, and an office assistant.

In addition to offering non-urgent care, the clinic will also offer occupational medicine services and treatment for on-the-job injuries. The proposed clinic hours are 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

The agreement represents an expansion of CHI St. Joseph Health’s Employee Health services, which launched a similar partnership four years ago with the City of Bryan. Earlier this year, that clinic expanded and relocated to 2308 E. Villa Maria, Suite 100 in Bryan, creating a single location that also serves Bryan ISD employees and their families.

Across both clinics, CHI St. Joseph Health will provide care for as many as 6,000 local city and school district employees.
