Serving Families since 1970s
CommuniCare Health Center’s history started with Sister Dolores’ unconditional love to provide care for those in need. Sister Dolores Girault, D.C., a retired nurse and pharmacist, realized there was increasing health problems in the West side of San Antonio. She solicited support and funding to operate a two-exam room pediatric clinic in the back of a church to care for children.
Today, CommuniCare Health Centers is a full service primary healthcare system that still represents the genuine and unconditional care that Sister Dolores’ showcased. CommuniCare Health Centers is determined to provide families the care they need and to make them feel at home as much as possible.
