For the past half century, Texoma Medical Center (TMC) has embraced a single mission: To provide quality care, deliver innovative services and exceed expectations.
The story of TMC began in 1965 with the opening of Memorial Hospital of Denison. The TMC Auxiliary was founded in 1966, a tradition of that continues today. In 1976, the hospital became accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent, nonprofit organization that accredits more than 20,500 U.S. healthcare organizations and programs.
By Denison’s Centennial in 1972, TMC was treating patients from across the region. To reflect its focus as a regional provider, Memorial Hospital of Denison changed its name to Texoma Medical Center in 1976 — representing the hospital’s commitment to providing quality healthcare for resident in Texoma, a focus that continues today.
In 1978, the hospital added a medical and surgical suite, expanding by more than 57,000 feet. Eleven years later, the first open-heart surgery procedure in the region was performed at TMC.
The Nineties marked the opening of the pediatric unit and the TMC Behavioral Health Center. The TexomaCare Physician Group was established in 1995, sharing TMC’s mission and dedication to community health. And the hospital opened the Reba McEntire Center for Rehabilitation, the first freestanding rehabilitation center between Oklahoma City and Dallas. The facility was named after the country star whose concerts benefitted construction.
With the millennium, TMC took emergency care in Texoma to new heights with the construction of its new Emergency Department, a designated Level III Trauma Center.

Texoma Medical Center broke ground on its present location and received its Primary Stroke Center designation from The Joint Commission in 2008. In 2009, the new TMC welcomed its first patients.
This bigger, better TMC opened its Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine in 2010. Soon after, the hospital introduced the minimally invasive DaVinci® robotic surgery system to the region, revolutionizing its surgery options.
Texoma Medical Center further transformed the region’s healthcare with the opening of TMC Advanced Medical Imaging in 2012. The hospital was named a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures® for 2011 by The Joint Commission, an achievement repeated for 2012.
In 2013, the hospital gained accreditation as a Chest Pain Center with PCI by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care, opened the TMC Breast Care Center and expanded the seventh floor.
TMC’s bariatric program became fully accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program in 2014. The TMC Breast Care Center also became a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, accredited by the American College of Radiology.
TMC recently opened its eighth floor, bringing the total bed count to 326. Two additional Urgent Care clinics opened in April 2015, making Urgent Care more convenient than ever, with three locations in Denison, Pottsboro, and Durant.
In the summer of 2015, the TMC Family Medicine Residency Program, which is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association, began training the next generation of physicians.
2015 – TMC has been named “Best Hospital” in the Herald Democrat’s annual Best of Texoma Readers’ Survey
From its many awards and accreditations to its ever-expanding services and programs, TMC has worked to set a higher standard of healthcare in the region. During the next 50 years, the hospital will continue to grow to meet the needs of the community it serves.
