The Seva Clinic, a neighborhood medical charity primary care facility, will open June 1 in the building of the Pearland Neighborhood Center.
The clinic will be open once a week on Thursdays between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. and will be run by volunteer physicians.
Also volunteering are nurses and others who, like the physicians, are not compensated for their services.
No appointments are needed to this new walk-in clinic and a voluntary donation of $10 per visit is suggested to help offset some of the overhead expenses. The donation is not required to get the services.
Only primary care is provided for adults. Care for children is available only when a pediatric provider is available.
Specialty services, surgical services and services for complex medical problems are beyond the scope of this clinic and are not available. Pain medications will not be prescribed.
The clinic was recently the site for a ribbon cutting by the Pearland Chamber of Commerce. An inauguration ceremony was held May 20 and included Mayor Tom Reid and representatives of the Memorial Hermann Hospital System.
The Seva Clinic is a Texas not-for-profit entity with 501 (c) (3) designation.
The clinic is located at 2335 N. Texas Avenue in Pearland.

Since its inception in 1987 the Pearland Neighborhood Center (PNC) has been fulfilling the needs of residents in the northern end of Brazoria County.
The multi-service center concept was in response to clients who need access to a variety of social services but were unable to travel to multiple locations. The “one stop” approach has proven to be the most effective way to deliver services.
