WelcomeOn behalf of the Dimmit Regional Hospital Corporation, Dimmit Regional Hospital District Board of Directors, and the entire staff of Dimmit Regional Hospital, we want to express our gratitude and appreciation to the residents of Dimmit County and surrounding areas. This community put tremendous faith in our team to get everyone through four surges of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Because the larger systems could not absorb all patients, we built out two ICU rooms along with makeshift accommodations, inserted negative pressure units to most of the patient rooms to include the emergency department, purchased several ventilators, developed access to critical care/pulmonary telehealth, and created a COVID-19 inpatient (swing-bed) unit. Also, we were able to upgrade our laboratory and radiology equipment with state-of-the-art equipment, incorporate hand-held ultra-sound technology, replace old plant equipment to include two chillers, a new generator to provide 100% backup power, and new to the plant is a 18,000-gallon water tank with a pump house and filtering system. If not for your trust and faith in our caregivers and support staff none of the aforementioned items would have been possible. And I would be remiss if I didn't express huge appreciation to the County, City, SWJTC, private industry, etc., for the help in establishing the COVID-19 vaccine hub from January through April 2021, which we provided over 21,000 vaccines.
The above reemphasizes our mission to you, which is "Excellent care to each patient, no exceptions." Our primary focus is to deliver the highest quality of care and to ensure the services we offer exceed your expectations. We desire to be your #1 choice for healthcare. We continue to look for ways to increase services, both in primary, specialty, and allied health services. Our website, http://www.dimmitregionalhospital.com, provides additional information on our services. Our website also provides you the tools needed to educate and increase your health awareness. Online healthcare is now being made available to you from this website. The site will introduce health information and patient education resources for you to explore.
Lastly, we want all our active duty, veterans, military retirees and their family members, reservists, and guard members, and first responders to know we are here for you.
