    Our Services

    Patient Care

    Whether it's a sudden illness, injury or a planned admission, you're in good hands at Childress Regional Medical Center. Staff members work under the direction of your doctor to provide care planned especially for you, your needs and your situation. Our promise is to keep you comfortable and safe. Our patients are our first priority ALWAYS.


    Acute: Your doctor will decide if your condition warrants an acute care admission. You will be admitted to a private room and nurses will provide care as directed by your doctor. The doctor will visit on a regular basis and make changes to your care plan as your condition changes. Most of the care will be provided in your room with appropriate staff members consulted as necessary. This could include laboratory and radiology technicians as well as specialized therapists.

    Swing Bed: There are times following an acute care admission when a little more time is needed before a patient can return home because skilled care is needed. While your doctor is still in charge of your care, most of your care will be provided by therapists and nurses.
