Nurse-Family Partnership

First-Time Pregnancy

Nurse-Family Partnership® is a nurse-led, evidence based home visitation program proven to significantly improve the health, well-being, and economic self-sufficiency for children and their families. Nurse-Family Partnership matches each first-time mothers-to-be with a registered nurse who visits her in her home during and after pregnancy. The visits continue after the birth of her baby until the child turns two years old. Nurse-Family Partnership is a free program to all eligible women.

In addition to providing health education about pregnancy and newborn care, the nurse is a source of support and resources in all areas which the client finds a need. Together, they work to accomplish goals set by the mother, such as continuing their educational path and employment. With over 30 years of experience, Nurse-Family Partnership currently serves more than 30,000 families in 43 states, 6 tribal communities, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Positive outcomes for clients served by Texas’ Nurse-Family Partnership include:

  • 89% babies born are full term
  • 91% babies born are at a healthy weight
  • 87% of mothers initiate breastfeeding
  • 93% of children received all recommended immunizations by 24 months

Community Healthcare Center held its grand opening, ribbon cutting and dedication this morning for Community Healthcare Center at Zundy. The first community school-based health center is dedicated to Ralph O. Harvey III. Mr. Harvey has been an integral part of the federally qualified health center in north Texas since the beginning. Ralph Harvey, Ray Clymer, and Bob Gunn spearheaded the fundraising campaign in the early 90s to bring a health center to Wichita Falls, which was named Community Healthcare Center.

In 2019, Community Healthcare Center’s Chief Executive Officer, Allen Patterson, brought an idea to their board of directors to bring a school-based community health center to this area. The idea was then taken to Mr. Michael Kuhrt, WFISD Superintendent of Schools, and the WFISD School Board who approved the measure and donated the land to build the new clinic. Then, the campaign fundraising was then put into motion by Mr. Harvey who raised the entire amount to bring this health center site into reality. “His dedication to the health center and its success has been a blessing to our patients and our community since the beginning,” stated Allen Patterson.

The school-based community health center now houses two healthcare providers seeing patients Monday through Friday with seven support staff members. “The clinic is beautiful, and the patients love it,” stated April Williams, a Community Healthcare Center at Zundy Family Nurse Practitioner.
