Midland Memorial Hospital

Midland Memorial Hospital (MMH) opened its doors as a community-owned hospital in 1950, and over the last six decades the hospital has undergone many dramatic changes to meet the needs of this dynamic community. The hospital continues to grow with the community and has introduced many innovative programs, such as the Heart Institute, state-of-the-art imaging services, a comprehensive surgery program and various rehabilitation services. Today, Midland Memorial Hospital has over 400 licensed beds and over 300 active physicians on staff, representing all major medical specialties. As one of the area’s leading employers, the hospital employs almost 1,600 area residents.

The 87,000-square-foot Nadine and Tom Craddick Medical Office Building is linked to the hospital for easy patient access and is a Class A medical office facility housing a wide spectrum of specialists. The Craddick Medical Office Building is home to the Allison Cancer Center and a full-service medical imaging facility known as Diagnostic Imaging Associates. A wide variety of outpatient health care services is offered at the hospital’s West Campus and Abell-Hanger Medical Pavilion. An affiliate of MMH also partners with local physicians and United Surgical Partners in an ambulatory surgery facility known as Texas Surgical Center.

In 2012, the hospital opened the new nine-story Dorothy and Clarence Scharbauer Jr Patient Tower, staying under the $177.6 million project budget. The new tower consolidated several West Campus operations, such as the OB/GYN unit, into the main campus. The tower also features a number of new amenities for inpatients, such as an interactive television system and a motorized patient lift in every room.

Award-Winning Care
Midland Memorial has received many awards and acknowledgements, and for the sixth year in a row was awarded the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Heart Failure Gold Plus Award. This highest honor for excellence in heart failure care means the hospital performed at or above 90 percent on multiple care standards that have been shown to decrease mortality and improve longevity in heart failure patients.

The ACTION REGISTRY – Get With The Guidelines (GWTG) Platinum Performance Achievement Award from the American College of Cardiology Foundation was also received. The American Heart Association’s collaborative quality improvement program demonstrates evidence-based care of patients hospitalized with coronary artery disease, heart failure or stroke.

Midland Memorial Hospital achieved the 2015 Mission: Lifeline® Silver Receiving Center award. Midland Memorial is a part of an elite group of hospitals recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The award recognizes commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of STEMI care by ensuring that STEMI patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations.

Midland Memorial also received a Center of Distinction Award for our Wound Management Center, as well as a second Pathway to Excellence Award from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The hospital has been certified as a Stroke Center of Excellence by the accrediting body (DNV), a Breast Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, the NICHE designation with an Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit and one of only four Certified Quality Breast Centers of Excellence in Texas, as recognized by the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program.


Over the past year, the hospital has developed a Values and Culture Initiative among employees, improving patient satisfaction scores dramatically. Numbers improved from record low levels in late 2013 to record high levels in 2014, as there was a 10 point improvement in the summary score. The hospital focuses on building an organization of people internally inspired, not simply externally trained, emphasizing a true mission for compassion to patients and their families.
