The Moore County Hospital was originally constructed in 1948 in Dumas, Texas. The hospital has expanded many times since then. It is currently landlocked and has sought to build in a new location outside of town. The hospital went out for a bond twice and it was rejected twice by the community as being too expensive. The Korte healthcare designers in collaboration with Gresham

Smith Architects came up with a solution that allows the Hospital to expand and provide a medical facility that meets today’s standards.

The solution was to close a portion of the street that landlocked the hospital from future expansion and acquire additional properties. This allows a two story 63,000 square foot addition south of the existing hospital which ties into the existing corridors. The first floor of the expansion houses the emergency room, operating rooms, imaging rooms, and mechanical systems. The second floor houses (25) patient rooms. The expansion also creates off-site parking and a helipad. Once the new addition is complete, different departments will be relocated to the new hospital. The existing hospital will be renovated to bring additional departments that are currently located off-site to the campus.

Korte worked with the Hospital Board and the community to get approval of the road closure to allow for the expansion.

With board approval Korte assisted the hospital in obtaining USDA funding for the project. The resolution to expand on site rather than build a new facility outside of town greatly reduced Moore County Hospital District’s financial burden, allowing them to deliver the critical care their community deserves.
