St. Verena Clinic is under the auspices of the Coptic Orthodox Church. It was founded in 2022 by members of the Coptic Orthodox community in Houston, TX. A decade ago, this group created an organization called St. Verena Medical Society. They were involved in missions to Kenya and Bolivia and also did Health Awareness days in the different churches in Houston. These activities have now evolved leading to the creation of St. Verena Clinic.
The clinic is under the leadership of HG Bishop Youssef, Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States, and his assistant in Texas HG Bishop Gregory.
