Schleicher County Medical Center (SCMC)

We have a long history of providing progressive healthcare with small town compassion to this rural community located at the Top of the Divide in Eldorado, Texas, 47 miles south of San Angelo, and about 200 miles west of Austin and southwest of San Antonio. It is a 14-bed facility that is home to a certified Level IV Trauma facility open 24/7. The facility also houses a rural health clinic and nursing home.

The community joined together in the spring of 2011 to voice their opinion on how important quality healthcare in their rural community is to them by approving a $17.37 million bond package to build a new hospital, clinic and nursing home. The new medical facilities are expected to be completed by late 2012 or early 2013 and will include a combined total of approximately 57,700 sq. ft. of brand new state-of-the-art patient rooms and equipment.

When the new medical campus is complete, the convenience of the hospital, nursing home and clinic being located together will serve the healthcare needs of the community and visitors with efficiency. The nursing home will house 32 private rooms for residents while the hospital will have 14 beds in 9 patient rooms. Both facilities will be served by a state-of-the art rural health clinic and emergency, imaging and laboratory departments.

The SCMC history began in 1966 when a petition was signed by 280 Schleicher County residents to build a hospital in Eldorado. Shortly after, a committee was formed to create a hospital district, the Schleicher County Hospital District. The charter approving the formation of a hospital district was approved by the Texas State Senate on April 6, 1967.

In 1968, Schleicher County Medical Center began serving the healthcare needs of the community with a hospital, emergency room, clinic and nursing home. A larger clinic was added in 1981 which is now called the Schleicher County Family Clinic.

To further ensure the long-term viability of the hospital, the hospital district board of directors voted to hire a company specializing in rural hospital operations, Preferred Management Corp. Quickly thereafter, the hospital became a Critical Access Hospital and the family clinic gained Rural Health Clinic status.
