To celebrate National Health Center Week, AccelHealth donated nearly $5,000 worth of personal protective equipment to the Tarleton Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department.

Esther Taylor, AccelHealth’s CEO, and Emily Brooks, director of compliance and safety, delivered 1,000 surgical masks, 600 cloth masks and 3,000 nitrile gloves to Tarleton’s ag workers thanks to a grant from the National Center for Farm Workers Health, Inc.

Taylor, with the help of other AccelHealth employees, also donated gift baskets filled with healthy snacks to the cities of Stephenville and Dublin as well as masks and Frisbees to Faith School.

AccelHealth is a Federally Qualified Health Center with offices in Stephenville, De Leon and Brownwood. They have been providing medical, dental and behavioral services for more than 53 years to all people regardless of insurance status or income level.

But that’s not all they do.

Brooks said the company’s mission is to spread compassionate care to their patients and communities they serve.

“I have never been surrounded by so many smart people who have so much love for others,” she said. “AccelHealth employees have the most compassionate and caring hearts. I mean from the providers to the nurses to the front office specialists – everyone. That is evident in their interactions with people and the care they provide to our patients.”

COVID TESTING

AccelHealth is located at 135 River North Blvd. near Ranger College in Stephenville and offers testing for COVID-19 for patients showing symptoms.

Patients who are uncomfortable with coming inside the clinic can have their tests administered in the clinic’s parking lot.

AccelHealth accepts insurance from several major carriers and offers a sliding fee scale for families that qualify.
