St. Joseph Regional Health Center
As the major medical referral center for the 12 county Brazos Valley areas, St. Joseph Regional Health Center has consistently responded to the community's medical needs by providing comprehensive, quality health care in a Christian atmosphere. The facility and staff have grown from its start at Bryan Hospital in 1913 with only 25 beds to its current size as St. Joseph Regional Health Center. As SJRHC continues to grow, they continue to develop relationships that aid the local community. For example, the growth and development of St. Joseph Regional Cancer Center and St. Joseph Regional Rehabilitation Center are only a few of the services provided by SJRHC.
SJRHC has a 10-bed behavior health unit at Grimes St. Joseph Health Center in Navasota, offering the only inpatient behavior health crisis stabilization services in the region. St. Joseph's Emergency Department is the major medical referral center for the seven-county Brazos Valley area. It was staffed, equipped and furnished to handle and treat all major and minor conditions and is designated as a Level III Trauma Center. SJRHC has a 36-bed critical care unit and a 36-bed med surg unit in the new tower. The facilities, faculty, and staff allow students to gain experience in the inpatient setting in various fields like Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, and Surgery. Currently the only one residency program is in the area allowing students gain hands-on experience and one-on-one time with faculty allowing for direct feedback from faculty.
College Station Medical Center
The hospital and clinic were founded in 1931 in Bryan, Texas. In 1987, Humana relocated the hospital from Bryan to its current location in 1997 and in 1998 the facility was renamed College Station Medical Center and referred to in the community as The Med. Through the years, The Med has established itself as a stable community hospital with an excellent reputation for quality care. The Med has continually worked to raise the level of healthcare in the Brazos Valley and introduced cardiology services in the late 1980s. A decade later, the hospital began to focus on new technologies and built primary and specialty care offices on its campus. The Med provides a full array of medical services that include cardiac, pediatrics, obstetrics, general and specialty surgery, cancer treatment, inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient physical therapy. In addition, a dialysis center is located on the campus.
