HEALTHCARE

Where community care means more.

Community-based care means more in Wharton, beginning with more and better nurses, thanks to the pipeline provided by Wharton Junior College, where RNs graduate ready to apply a superior nursing skill set to our healthcare settings.

Wharton residents also enjoy the excellent care and peace of mind that comes with the services of the greater Houston area’s last independent non-profit hospital, OakBend Medical Center, where the no-wait Emergency Department sets the standard for care that includes Advanced Level III Trauma, Level II neonatal care, and Acute Care for the elderly. At the El Campo Memorial Hospital, a walk-in clinic is only one of a wide range of hospital services, including an Emergency Department, ICU, a sleep lab and a swing-bed program.

Wharton community care also means more choices in both general and specialized care, thanks to high quality providers offering patient-centered excellence. With the services of physicians and healthcare professionals representing more than two dozen medical specialties, Herman Medical Group offers the kind of state-of-the-art care that assures true well-being, especially since HMG’s wealth of clinical resources is provided by one of the Houston area’s largest and most experienced physician networks.

Wharton puts residents within a quick drive to 80 Houston area hospitals, including world-class facilities like M.D. Anderson and Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, an award-winning facility that for nearly two decades has been one of the region’s premiere pioneers in the advancement of medicine. An associated facility of the renowned Houston Methodist (ranked #1 in Texas hospitals by U.S. News & World Report), Methodist Sugar Land is a top-ranked hospital in its own right, providing the services of nearly 1,000 physicians from a diverse spectrum of specialties.
