our partnership 
with Health by Design

The Fire and Police Retiree Health and Wellness Fund partners with Health by Design. Members of The Fund and their families have access to 3 specialized clinics staffed by Health by Design professionals. These clinics are conveniently located on the North Central side off Paesanos Parkway, on the Southeast side near Brooks City Base and our newest Wellness Center on the North West Side off Tezel Rd. and Culebra.

Health by Design offers patients a customized health care experience that focuses on the mind, body and soul. This is called Well+Being Care. In every life Health by Design touches, they seek to produce a healthy body, sound mind, and hope-filled spirit that inspires the patient to live a healthier, more rewarding life.

This transformative health care experience includes more time with doctor’s and staff, an individualized health plan tailored to each patient’s needs, an executive Well+Being Exam to assess overall well-being and more. 

Health by Design clinics offer primary care and specialty care including fitness, nutrition and mental health. All 3 clinics are available to members of The Fund and their families free of charge.
