Message from the CEO

Welcome to Medical Center Health System!

Just over sixty years ago, the citizens of Odessa saw the need to build a community hospital. Hence, they began the tradition of providing high quality healthcare to their neighbors through the creation of Medical Center Hospital. Today, that tradition continues.

To serve the emerging health needs of the Permian Basin, Medical Center Hospital has grown from one hospital into a family of advance health care centers. This new Medical Center Health System enables us to provide a higher level of comprehensive care and more access points for your health care needs.

Through the years, this once small 85 bed community hospital has grown to become a 402 bed regional medical center; a teaching hospital; and now a health care system including satellite outpatient services and integrated physician services. However, one thing remains a constant – the provision of high quality care.

When you come to Medical Center Health System, whether as a patient or a visitor, our staff of over 2,250 employees will provide you friendly, safe, and caring services in an environment that is supported by our vision to be recognized as the premier health system in the Permian Basin. Our team of caregivers is comprised of people you know – your friends, family, and neighbors. They are people who care; people you can trust to meet your healthcare needs.

We hope you will take the time to browse our website and see for yourself why Medical Center Health System is the leading healthcare provider in our region. When it comes to your health, you can feel confident knowing that the new Medical Center Health System is – your one source for health.

We know you have a choice – thank you for choosing Medical Center Health System!
