Renovation DrawingOUR VISION FOR MEETING OUT FUTURE HEALTHCARE NEEDS

To build the hospital  that Texas County needs to meet our future healthcare needs, we are launching a $3.2 million capital campaign—Care for Your Future—designed to address the limitations of the aging and inadequate portions of our current hospital, beginning with our surgery department and adding a tornado safe room.

The new surgery department will:
•  Double the size of the department for two operating rooms and an outpatient surgery room
•  Incorporate the latest technology for operating room efficiency
•  Help recruit new physicians and ancillary staff and assist in retaining current physicians
•  Advanced 24/7 access to general surgery care•  Provide 7 private pre- and post-surgery bays for patients and their family members
– Particularly important for infant/parent bonding following C-sections
•  Have 6,091 square feet of climate-controlled space

Surgery & Safe RoomThe FEMA approved tornado safe room will:
•  Be capable of sustaining 250 MPH winds for 2 hours
•  Provide shelter for 462 patients, staff members and community residents in severe weather
•  Enhance capacity for triage in case of mass casualty
•  Have a backup generator supplying power
•  Have 4,000 square feet of climate-controlled space utilized as waiting space in non-threatening weather times
