We provide medical screenings for all enrollees in the Head Start program for the Tyler Independent School District and numerous other school districts in the Region Seven Education Service area.
We are a participant in the Reach Out and Read program, a national early childhood literacy program that makes early literacy a standard part of pediatric primary care. We give out books to children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years and advise parents that reading aloud to their children is vital to them learning to love reading and starting school ready to learn.
We conduct the Healthy Kids Healthy Families program at our Andrews Park facility during the summer, providing nutritional education to children and their families to help fight obesity. This program is funded by a grant from the American Academy of Pediatrics Community Access to Child Health Implementation Fund.
The clinic accepts Medicaid, CHIPS, and private insurance. Patients without insurance will be required to pay a minimal fee due at the time of service. No child is denied service based on his family’s ability to pay.
Local schools work alongside St Paul with many nurses, nurse practitioners and medical assistants rotating through the clinic for practical, hands-on training. We also work with the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler in providing a pediatric rotation for their residents in our clinic.
The medical clinic is located at 1350 E. Richards in Tyler adjacent to the Foundation office and Dental Clinic and is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. The phone number is 903-531-9455 and the fax number is 903-526-3118. After hours care is provided via the services of Telecare in conjunction with CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Hospital.
