In 1950, Midland Memorial Hospital, the only not-for-profit hospital in Midland County, Texas was established by prominent community leaders with one mission: "To make quality healthcare available to all residents of Midland County." Funds to build the hospital were donated by individuals, corporations and foundations as a nonprofit, community-based hospital, offering medical care to the west Texas community, regardless of their ability to pay.
The hospital opened its doors on July 11, 1950, as a community owned, 75-bed hospital, serving the nearly 22,000 people who resided in Midland County. The hospital was staffed with 78 employees and 26 physicians. The 58,694 square foot, state-of-the-art medical facility cost $1,372,000.
Over succeeding decades, Midland Memorial Hospital has changed dramatically to meet the needs of a dynamic community. In May 2009, Midland County residents approved a $115 million bond to build a new patient tower, which was combined with another $62.6 million in private donations and grants. It was the first $100 million bond issue approved by Midland voters.
On December 19, 2012, the hospital opened the new, nine-story, Dorothy and Clarence Scharbauer Jr Patient Tower, staying under the $177.6 million project budget.
The new tower consolidated several West Campus operations, such as the OB/GYN unit, into the main campus. The tower also features a number of new amenities for inpatients such as an interactive television system and a motorized patient lift in every room. The hospital is licensed for 468 beds and offers several innovative programs, including the Heart Institute, Total Joint Center, women’s and children’s health care services and various rehabilitation programs.
In August 1977, the Hospital District was formed and a modest tax levied to support only the care of indigent patients. Now, the Board of Directors of the Midland County Hospital District, elected by the voters, add their counsel and insight to the direction of the volunteer Boards of Trustees and Governors, in guiding the further development of Midland Memorial Hospital.
For over 60 years, we have maintained our pledge to deliver quality health care to the residents of Midland County and the surrounding region. Our staff, volunteers, facilities, and services reflect this commitment today. We are committed to providing the best possible care and service you and your family need.
