Card said that more than 40 health organizations will be at the mall informing people of services ranging from hospice to home care.
Randy Vivian, president and CEO of the chamber of commerce, said he wants the residents of Victoria to know that they don't have to travel out of the area to receive health care.
"We want our citizens to know that they can get their health needs taken care of here," Vivian said. "We have good, quality doctors that provide good, quality care."
