Our vision is to be the leader in Northeast Texas by offering high quality hospital and physician services that meet the healthcare needs of our region and that our patients will recommend to others.
Supported by a staff of more than 40 physicians, Memorial Hospital offers a wide of services including a full service emergency department that is staffed 24 hours a day and a mobile intensive care ambulance service. The hospital's Intensive Care Unit includes 10 beds (six critical care beds and four step-down beds). Other specialty services include inpatient and outpatient surgery, diagnostic imaging, pathology, obstetrics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, intensive care, and respiratory therapy. Specialists on either active or courtesy staff provide services in cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics, otolaryngology (ENT) pediatrics, pulmonology, and urology. Other outpatient services include sleep studies, nuclear stress testing, pulmonary function testing and a catheterization laboratory. Hospice at Memorial provides care for terminally ill patients and their families. It is a hospital-based, physician-directed, nurse-coordinated home care approach to the special needs of the terminally ill patient.
Memorial Hospital's Women's Pavilion includes eight labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum suites, two surgery suites and a Level II nursery. The Day Surgery Department features a pre-admit clinic for day-surgery patients, operating rooms, gastroenterology procedure rooms and urology procedure rooms.
The Center for Acute Rehab Excellence (CARE) Unit at Memorial Hospital is a 10-bed acute, inpatient rehabilitation program located on the lower floor of the Women's Pavilion. The CARE Unit provides quality, comprehensive care for those recovering from brain injury, stroke, major multiple trauma, amputation, degenerative neurological disorders, orthopaedic injury, arthritis, spinal cord injury, burns and congenital deformities.
Memorial Medical Plaza is a 32,000-square-foot medical office building housing the new Healthplex at Memorial, a modern outpatient physical rehabilitation center that offers comprehensive rehabilitation services including a therapeutic pool. The additional two floors accommodate physician offices.
In 2006 Memorial Hospital opened the Wound Care at Memorial Center, a comprehensive center for wound care and hyperbaric medicine. Our specially trained staff at the center is dedicated to providing comprehensive treatment using the most technologically advanced wound care therapy. In addition, we will provide valuable education to the patients and caregivers to assist with problem wound management. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used as an adjunctive treatment for problematic, non-healing wounds that meet specific criteria, and it is expected that 20% of the wound care cases will meet those criteria.
Memorial Hospital completed a $36 million expansion in the Spring, 2010. This expansion created a new, much larger emergency department and all private rooms. All of the current patient rooms and support areas on the second and third floors were gutted and remodeled. A new front entrance, lobby, gift shop and communication area were part of this expansion project. The expansion encompassed 27,959 new square feet and 39,098 renovated square feet.
Memorial Hospital began a partnership with Advanced Heart Care. This partnership offers a full range of cardiac services to the citizens of Hopkins County. The program includes a diagnostic cath lab, where people who are otherwise healthy but have symptoms that warrant a closer look can have testing done.
The program provides interventional procedures, such as stents and balloons to help clear blockage in blood vessels in the limbs and coronary procedures. Treatments such as pacemakers and implantable defibrillators are also available. "We provide nuclear cardiology, echocardiograms and the peripheral vascular testing that goes along with a full-scale cardiac program," says McAndrew.
On November 1, 2010, the Hopkins County Hospital District and the Hopkins County Memorial Hospital finalized the integration of Memorial Physician Services and Sulphur Springs Medical Surgical Clinic. These two clinics are now operating under the new name Memorial Clinic. The parent company, Hopkins County Physician Services, will oversee the operation of the new Memorial Clinic.
