Texana Center is a 501(c)3 public, not for profit, organization that provides behavioral healthcare and developmental disabilities services to residents of a six county area that includes Austin,
Colorado, Fort Bend, Matagorda, Waller and Wharton Counties.
The center began operations on September 1, 1999, following a merger of two other healthcare organizations. Texana Center has its headquarters in Rosenberg in Fort Bend County, which is one of the
fastest growing counties in the nation. The center has an annual operating budget of $35,300,000 and a staff of 560.
Texana serves about 4,000 individuals per month, and over 7,500 annually in its array of service programs that are located in each of the six counties, covering about 6,000 square miles. The
center is designated by the Texas Department of Aging and Disabilities Services as the Local Mental Retardation Authority and by the Texas Department of State Health Services as the Local
Mental Healthcare Authority. Texana Center maintains a large performance contract with each of the state agencies listed above, and uses state general revenue funds to provide services under those contracts
on a discounted basis to those who cannot afford to pay the full cost of services. The center also provides services to those with Medicaid, private insurance, and managed care, and is the largest
provider of Home and Community-based Services in Texas. Texana Center is a member of the Texas Council of Community MHMR Services, the National Council for Behavioral Healthcare Services, and Mental
Healthcare Corporations of America.
