Welcome to Refugio County Memorial Hospital

During the early and mid 1930’s citizens of the county and town of Refugio, Texas envisioned a community hospital. Inhabitants of the place felt that with the exception of Corpus Christi’s Spohn Hospital, facilities in the immediate area were inadequate. On February 2, 1940, the hospital admitted its first patient and on February 7, the first baby was born. Refugio County Hospital was underway.

Over the last 80 years, Refugio County Memorial Hospital has been there through thick and thin for the medical needs of the citizens of Refugio and surrounding communities. We’ve grown as the community has grown; adding health clinics, a wellness center, and a newly expanded and remodeled emergency room.

Thank you Refugio for 80 years, and here’s to 80 more! We’re here for you and because of you!

The Residents of Refugio County,

As of today at 0800 all of the COVID-19 test results received for Refugio County have been negative. To date, the Refugio County Memorial Hospital District has performed 24 COVID-19 tests. We have 19 negative results back and 4 that are pending. The turn-around time for the lab tests is improving and we are now getting results in 48-72 hours. That time frame could change as the demand on the labs is still growing. We will continue to test patients according to guidelines outlined by the CDC.

Yesterday, Judge Blaschke issued a mandatory stay at home order for Refugio County. This order is vital to ensure that we as a community continue to stay safe and slow the spread of this illness. How we as a community handle ourselves in the coming weeks is going to determine whether or not the County of Refugio experiences a severe outbreak. As the number of infections and deaths climb exponentially a new reality is upon us. Our families, friends, loved ones and we ourselves could become a negative COVID-19 statistic.

I would like to take this opportunity to point out how proud I am to be part of this community and what we have accomplished during this disaster. I had hoped that Hurricane Harvey would be the last disaster we would have to endure for many years, but here we are again. In my 25 year healthcare career, I have met hundreds of heroes. These people have put their lives on the line to protect and serve others. While this outbreak is a terrible crisis, it has been an opportunity for new heroes to emerge. I am extremely proud of my staff and the measures they are taking to ensure that our community stays safe. Our community leaders have all stepped up to the challenge working long hours and making tough decisions to protect all of us. I also want to recognize the retail and trucking industry for stepping up to make sure that we have access to the food and supplies that we all need. These individuals have also worked long hard often thankless hours restocking shelves, interacting with the public, and driving all night to ensure that we all have the supplies needed to get through this crisis. I extend my most sincere thanks to all of those heroes who have stepped up during this crisis.

I encourage all of you to remain vigilant and adhere to the Stay at Home Order. Don’t put yourself or others at an unnecessary risk. We have a long road ahead of us before this is all over. It should be each and everyone’s goal to stay healthy during this outbreak. The only way to reach that goal is to stay home and practice safe distancing and proper hand washing hygiene. Each time you venture out, you are placing yourself, your loved ones, and those you come into contact with at risk.

Stay Safe and Stay Informed,

Hoss Whitt, CEO
