At The Patient Institute, our mission is to empower South Texas patients, their families, caregivers, and healthcare professionals to more effectively navigate the healthcare system.  We accomplish this through:
• Educating and empowering people to become better informed and engaged patients
• Educating and empowering caregivers and healthcare professionals to become more effective, understanding, and compassionate
• Research, development and advocacy of practical healthcare initiatives
• The establishment and administration of a charitable fund for discretionary support and care


The Patient Institute is a preeminent source of healthcare education and resources for South Texas patients, families, caregivers and healthcare professionals.


We believe that no patient needs us more than the senior patient. Our Geriatrics Council of experts leads the way on covering topics and issues that matter most to senior patients, their families, and caregivers.
