When it opened in 1933, Plains Memorial Hospital was the first hospital in Castro County, Texas. Housed on the second floor of the First State Bank, the privately held hospital served the community with a total of 10 beds.

Today, Plains Memorial Hospital continues to serve the community and is expanding to include a 60-bed Free Standing Senior Living Facility. The Korte Company was selected to construct this greenfield project which includes 48 skilled-nursing beds and 12 assisted living units.

The design layout is designed with both patients and staff in mind with an open atmosphere to promote a high degree of patient/caregiver interaction. Several common gathering areas within the facility add to the facility’s community design approach.

Other areas include a spacious front patio, chapel, media room, gift shop, wellness center and bar. A physical therapy area for the facility’s residents is also included in the overall design.

The community oriented approach is evident throughout the facility, including the dining facility, which is large enough to accommodate all of the residents as well as outside guests who may want to dine at restaurant.

The project also includes a laundry unit that will service the senior living facility as well as the needs of the other hospitals and facilities within the Plains Memorial campus.
