West Texas Emergency Medicine Group Offers $500k Plus
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.
