Our History

In 1975, 15 local physicians who shared a passion for providing high quality care for their patients and wanted to make a difference in the way medicine was being practiced in Nacogdoches, founded our hospital.

hospital70sFrom the beginning, we placed an emphasis on the people who worked tirelessly providing care to our community in times of sorrow and pain as well as in times of hope and joy. We recognize our employees, physicians and partners that make Nacogdoches Medical Center the hospital of choice in our community.

Since the beginning, NMC has always been focused on the future, frequently undergoing expansions and renovations to remain relevant and ensure we continued to offer East Texas the quality care and range of services they deserve. 

In the 80’s we saw the addition of our Women’s Center, and full service Imaging Department. The 90’s brought the creation of our Same Day Surgery department, the Loma Laird Cancer Center, and our Occupational Health Clinic. In the new millennium our trajectory of growth never slowed, as we added the Nacogdoches Surgery Center, our Free Standing Diagnostic Imaging Center, The Wound Care Center and in 2013, both the Breast Health and Infusion Centers.

Late in 2014, after almost a full year of construction, we proudly opened the doors to our most recent addition: the NMC-Center Emergency and Diagnostic Imaging Facility. This off campus facility is a $7.8 million dollar investment in Shelby County, providing state of the art, full service emergency room care around the clock for the people of Deep East Texas. Also at that location, we offer outpatient diagnostics and lab services to conveniently serve the needs of all East Texans.

NMC’s diverse and highly skilled work force of 450 employees embraces a common goal: to provide the community with the highest quality of healthcare possible. The compassionate men and women of Nacogdoches Medical Center dedicate their lives to providing the very best care possible to our family members, our friends and our neighbors.

We remain proud of what our staff and physicians have accomplished. We are proud of our history and distinguished accomplishments and will continue to deliver the unmatched service, high quality and compassionate care we have become known for. We look forward to continued growth and will strive to remain the hospital of choice for East Texas residents.
