Martin County Hospital History


Martin County Hospital District (MCHD) was organized in 1967 and has boundaries coterminous with Martin County, Texas. Now located in the heart of West Texas, MCHD was initially opened in 1949 near downtown Stanton. 

While the initial facility served the community well for many years, the time for change came in May 2012 when a new state-of-the-art, 18-bed facility was opened on the I20. The new facility was designed as a Critical Access Hospital to bring healthcare to the community members who really need it.

Our Mission and Values


Our Vision at the Martin County Hospital District is to ensure the availability and viability of patient-centered primary and specialty care in our community’s rural setting.

Our Mission is to provide the highest quality, compassionate care to improve the lives of every patient that comes through our doors. We are committed to excellence and have hired a highly-skilled, qualified team to help us bring the best levels of care to our patients.

Our Core Values revolve around empowering the members of our community through access to quality healthcare and healthcare education.

The designation of Critical Access Hospital was given to MCHD after we were declared eligible for the title and responsibility by the Centres for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The District has financial and operational oversight responsibility for the Hospital, the Family Clinic, Homecare Program, and EMS services. The Board of Directors is appointed by the Martin County Commissioners Court to serve staggered, two-year terms.
