Nacogdoches Memorial Health was honored with Best of Nac awards in several categories in 2015, including “Best Hospital”, “Best ER” and “Best Place to Have a Baby.” Others included “Best Family Practice” for Care First Clinic, “Best Pharmacist” for Patti Madison and “Best Nurse” runner up for Jacque Cleverdon, as awarded by the readers of the Nacogdoches Daily Sentinel.
In 2015, Memorial Hospital went through the recertification process for maintaining designation as the only Joint Commission Certified Stroke Center and the only Chest Pain Center in Nacogdoches; they are still the only Level III Trauma Center and the only hospital in Deep East Texas with all three designations.
Memorial also launched a Zero Wait ER last year, embracing a new philosophy in emergency medical treatment - getting you into a room as soon as you arrive and having a qualified medical professional assessing your condition and beginning your preliminary treatment right away.
Last year, Memorial also celebrated the opening of Care First Clinic, extending their family of services to 1108 South Street with a women’s health clinic, as well as a primary and specialty care clinic.
In 2014 and 2015, a $40 million construction project was completed, featuring a state-of-the-art Surgical Center, all-new Women’s and Children’s Center, new parking plaza with helipad, new Coffee Spot and a newly-enlarged ER. They also began updates to public access areas such as hallways, discharge area, lobby, cafeteria and vending services, as well as some patient rooms; more improvements are underway.
Memorial is engaged in a hospital-wide mindset, focused on addressing the needs and comfort of their patients and visitors. They hope these efforts resonate with the community and that you will trust them with your healthcare needs well into the future.

Memorial Health promotes lifelong health through community wellness programs and an emphasis on preventative care, and have constructed new facilities where dedicated specialists deliver advanced treatment close to home.
