Coryell Memorial Healthcare System was built as a community hospital and continues to expand to include a wide range of healthcare services. Since 1979, the hospital has been accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).The centerpiece of the healthcare system is the fully accredited, licensed 25-bed hospital. The hospital provides quality healthcare with small town hospitality. It is served by three hospitalists, a surgeon, licensed nurses and ancillary staff. Most health needs can be met here and specialty services are always available through Scott & White and other surrounding hospitals. Physical, occupational, and speech therapies, respiratory, diagnostic imaging, pharmacy and laboratory services are all available in-house.For critically ill patients, our four-bed Intensive Care Unit and skilled staff are ready to provide the best care to stabilize the patient and put them on the path to recovery. The surgical department performs a variety of surgeries in a modern facility with excellent staff. The small staff allows for personal care and continuity of service. Examples of surgeries performed include skin cancer biopsies, mastectomies, hernias, gall bladders, wound debridement, and endoscopic procedures such as EGD and colonoscopies.When seconds count, the Emergency Department (ED) swings into action to give life-saving care. Coryell Memorial Healthcare System recently updated its ED with six new patient rooms and other upgrades. The new facility covers over 5,000 square feet and more than doubles the emergency room's capacity. It features a fully equipped trauma room, a new helicopter pad, and new equipment. This wonderful addition was largely made possible by the community it serves. Donations large and small were all instrumental in making this vital expansion possible. In honor of their "Platinum Founder" level donation, the new ED has been named the Gary and Diane Heavin Emergency Services. The Heavins and other donors are listed on a large display in the ED waiting area and we are all thankful for their dedication to the health of this community.The Coryell Memorial EMS is ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to handle medical emergencies. With a fleet of four well-equipped ambulances and a staff of certified emergency medical technicians and paramedics, the EMS is able to respond to most emergencies in Coryell County.If you need emergency medical attention, please call 9-1-1.
