Healthcare Services

Healthcare Services is one of the fastest growing needs and industries in the United States, and Palestine is uniquely positioned to provide both high quality patient care and support for related businesses and entrepreneurial thinking.

Serving 100,000 people every year, the Palestine Regional Medical Center and Palestine Regional Rehabilitation Hospital is renowned for providing advanced diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative services. Employing over 500 people, including 80 physicians representing 28 different specialties, these facilities feed and draw from auxiliary doctors and dentists offices and assisted living centers. And the workforce and demand exists for the expansion of diagnostic laboratories, outpatients care centers and other related services. Most recently CHRISTUS Health announced plans for a new emergency hospital campus in Palestine. The project includes a nearly 20,000 square-foot facility that will house a state-of-the art freestanding emergency department with imaging and laboratory services. CHRISTUS will also be adding inpatient beds at this facility so that patients can stay close to home for acute hospital care.
