The good works of the Arthur Nagel Community Clinic in Bandera has been recognized in a resolution from State Sen. Dawn Buckingham’s office and in a proclamation by Bandera County Commissioners’ Court declaring Thursday, Nov. 21, as Arthur Nagel Community Clinic Day in the county.
The proclamation from the county, approved by commissioners on Thursday, Nov. 14, said since its founding on May 10, 2008, the Nagel clinic has “been a beacon of hope and a vital provider of professional healthcare to qualified county residents,” investing more than $7 million to help the area’s neediest families get needed healthcare at no cost.
Nov. 21 is National Rural Health Day that recognizes the outstanding work of the nation’s free and charitable clinics, the county’s proclamation said, and the Nagel clinic deserves to be honored as part of that day.
“Through its commitment to the well-being of Bandera County’s most vulnerable residents, the Nagel Clinic is making a positive difference in their lives and helping to strengthen the community as a whole,” the Senate resolution added.
Buckingham, a Lake-way Republican, represents state Senate District 24, which includes Bandera County.
The clinic is located in the Helping Hand Village of Hope at 1116 12th St. in Bandera.
