Our History & Mission

Founded in Bandera, Texas in 2008 by Texas Hill Country businessman Arthur W. Nagel and other concerned, community-minded friends, Arthur Nagel Community Clinic (ANCC) is the only 501(c)(3), nonprofit service provider of low-cost primary and preventive healthcare for low-income, medically underserved Bandera County residents aged 12 and older. In addition, the Clinic provides integrated behavioral health services (mental health counseling), prescription assistance, and healthy lifestyle classes. Over the past ten years, ANCC has invested more than $7 million in helping the area’s neediest families, treating 2,700 unduplicated patients with 18,900 separate medical and health education services.

Arthur Nagel Community Clinic believes that every person deserves good health and well-being. The Clinic’s programs and services actively promote dignity and self-respect for all. This year, we anticipate providing nearly $1.2 million in services and medications with a budget of only $637,000.
