Leon Evans, President and CEO of The Center for Health Care ServicesDear Community Partners:


The Center for Health Care Services would like to thank you for visiting our website.   

For fifty years, we have worked with our partners in public health and safety to provide innovative approaches to hope and healing. Communities throughout the nation and abroad have come to tour our facilities and share our story as we have helped thousands of people avoid jail and long-term hospital stays. In the process of helping individuals and families regain independent, productive lives, we have saved over $50 million in taxpayer dollars and helped make Bexar County a healthier place to live.

Our internationally known programs are the result of a highly effective and cooperative spirit throughout the health, law enforcement, judicial and non-profit organizations in our county. All of this has come together under the guidance of the Bexar County Commissioners Court, the University Health System and our own Board of Trustees.

The Center for Health Care Services helps people face their challenges and find a meaningful role in their community. As they get better, life gets better for their families, friends and loved ones. It is satisfying work, and it would not be possible without the help of 1,000 dedicated psychiatrists, nurses, clinicians and public servants leading and serving our mission.
