Hamid Razavi works in the “Ellis Island of Houston” and established the medical institution, Hillcroft Physicians Clinic, against all odds. He did not stop or limit this worthy endeavor to just the formation of a comprehensive and unique medical home. Hamid Razavi also worked to house the first charter school in the area. He also made a partial in-kind donation of four acres of land for a community center in Gulfton.

Hamid Razavi is also instrumental in the building of a City of Houston Community Center as well as leading an initiative to widen Hillcroft street which added to the successful commercial development of the Gulfton area. Hamid Razavi also led the effort for significant repairs and improvement to the area’s drainage system.

Community Leader

Hamid Razavi worked with the City of Houston Health Department to occupy 2,000 square feet of the Hillcroft Physicians medical center for two years at no cost to the taxpayer until the Department could move to their new location. Because of this, the Harris County Health Department granted Hillcroft Physicians a contract enabling it to be the primary healthcare facility in Harris County for new immigrants until it ultimately opened its own clinic years later.

The YMCA International, Catholic Charities and Alliance for Refugees refer their patients to Hillcroft Clinic for their healthcare needs. The Hillcroft Physicians medical team serves not only as healthcare providers but also nutritionists, counselors and social workers for these patients as many suffer from severe post-traumatic stress disorder, (PTSD).
