The mission of Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic (LBUCC) is to proudly provide quality care to all people, creating a safe, affordable, and accessible healthcare experience.
The vision of Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic (LBUCC) is: One Family. One Community. Better Health.
In 1972, the residents of several West Dallas neighborhoods united to open a community clinic in a portable building to serve a population disenfranchised from the economic and social services of the city due primarily to language and cultural differences.
Los Barrios Unidos Community Clinic (LBUCC) has flourished tremendously since its opening. Eighty-eight percent of LBUCC’s 27,000 patients are Hispanic and 59% are uninsured. Over 30 clinicians provide nearly 88,000 patient visits each year. Patients are drawn from all parts of Dallas County although West Dallas, Oak Cliff and Grand Prairie are the core market areas. LBUCC proudly provides top-notch care to all people regardless of race, ethnicity, place of residence or even the ability to pay.
Today, LBUCC boasts over 70,000 square feet of clinic space on the West Dallas campus and at the newer, LBU Health Center in Oak Cliff, Texas. LBUCC provides culturally competent primary care services including pediatrics, prenatal care, adult care, mental health care, dental care for children, WIC services and other supportive services.
LBUCC has been fully accredited by The Joint Commission since 1998. Clinic outcomes are systematically monitored to achieve this accreditation. Licensed physicians, dentists and nurses are also formally credentialed and granted clinical privileges.
LBUCC has gained a great deal of experience since its inception and continues to respond to the community’s changing needs.
