QUALITY & CONVENIENCE


THE HEARTBEAT OF YCH

At Yoakum County Hospital, we pride ourselves on the quality of care we provide for our patients. Not only do we pursue excellence in medical treatments, but we also provide the patient with the best all-around experience. Whether it’s the convenience of short wait times, one-on-one care from physicians, the finest fitness accommodations in the area, or bringing physicians in from out of town who specialize in cardiology, dermatology, urology, and podiatry, quality and convenience are our greatest concerns.

It’s a common misconception that “small town” is synonymous with “dated”, but at Yoakum County Hospital, that’s not the case. Even though we only serve a population area of 25,000 from West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, our facilities are nothing less than state-of-the-art. Our recently remodeled labor and delivery rooms and Dialysis Center house the newest technology to ensure the highest quality of care for our patients. We also provide a wide range of services from OBGYN to home health and are trained to care for all stages of life.
