Texoma Medical Center, conveniently located on US Highway 75 and FM 691, offers a
comprehensive range of medical services including cardiovascular, maternity and
women’s health, emergency, and surgical care, along with specialty programs in
stroke, chest pain, diabetes, bariatric surgery, rehabilitation and pediatrics.
TMC was the first hospital in the region to have a cardiac care unit; the first
to perform open-heart surgery; the first to offer digital mammography and
stereotactic breast biopsy; the first to open a Behavioral Health Hospital; the
first to use da Vinci® Si HD robot for complex,
delicate, minimally invasive surgeries in multiple specialties including general
surgery, gynecology and urology and the
first to build a new 370,000 square-foot hospital.
And this is no typical hospital. Designed with a concept called hospitality healing, each
public area is designed to be relaxing and comforting. The hospital lobby looks
similar to that of many high-end hotels and features comfortable seating, an
electric fireplace and a soothing water feature. TMC has 170 all-private
patient rooms with amenities such as spacious floor plans, flat-screen televisions,
Wi-Fi Internet access and spectacular views from an abundance of windows. And
through At your Request®, with attention to physician’s orders, patients are
able to order meals straight from a widely varied menu by simply calling the
Café - similar to hotel room service.
Patients and medical staff benefit from latest equipment such as digital mammography,
stereotactic breast biopsy, PET scan, and 64-slice CT (computed tomography)
scanners. Physicians can utilize these tools to offer them a more detailed view
with better capability to diagnose disease. And the Texoma Heart Institute
houses two cardiac catheterization labs with new diagnostic imaging equipment.
The region’s most established heart program also performs open-heart surgery
and beating-heart bypass.
The hospital’s operating room offers advancements for a variety of comprehensive
surgical services including robotic surgery. Laparoscopic procedures such as
weight-loss surgery, hernia repair, and kidney removal mean smaller incisions
which in turn allow for less trauma, less scarring and faster recovery.
The third floor Women & Children’s Center is designed with special safety in mind.
Spacious labor and delivery rooms help families welcome their new babies. Women
undergoing medical procedures are able to recover in rooms that are serene and
comfortable. Children can enjoy a little time in a playroom designed especially
for young patients. And everyone who enters this floor can be assured that
patient safety and care are top priorities with an advanced security system.
TMC is certified as a primary stroke center by The Joint Commission, a recognition
considered to be the gold standard for stroke care. And the hospital is the
only Level III designated trauma center between Oklahoma City and the Dallas –
Ft. Worth metroplex. This means that TMC is prepared to provide advanced
emergency services to victims of motor vehicle accidents, heart attacks and
other trauma. The TMC Diabetes LifeCenter is recognized by the American
Diabetes Association for meeting national standards for diabetes
self-management education and the TMC Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric
Medicine has been deemed a Center of Distinction by Healogics ™. The hospital’s
growing Bariatric Surgery program has been accredited by the Metabolic and
Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, the only
accrediting body of its type in the US.
Texoma Medical Center is one of the largest employers in the region and is continually
searching for the best healthcare professionals to join its team. The medical
staff continues to grow as the region’s best doctors choose to practice at TMC.
In addition to all of these advancements, you can expect a dedication to care
and compassion from the staff at Texoma Medical Center.

Assisted Living in the Denison community
Seniors today are not the seniors of yesteryear … most live
full, active, and balanced lives. So deciding to move into assisted living,
senior communities, or another type of senior housing can be a confusing process
for seniors and their families alike.
That concern for health care is shared among our parents, grandparents and loved ones as they reach retirement age and beyond. Maybe confusion is keeping your mother from keeping her doctor appointments straight. Perhaps depression has stopped dad’s fishing trips that
he has always loved so much. There may be instances when a loved one needs regular attention for their Alzheimer’s while you are at work. Help is just down the road, and the choices abound right here in the community.
There are a wide variety of services that provide health care and safety for loved ones as they age, and can be provided in the home as well. A contract can be made between an individual and
a personal care provider to guarantee that each party is aware of their rights and the level of care to be provided. There are services to help monitor diet, arrange appointments, offer medication assistance, home maintenance, provide transportation, prescription delivery, as well as providing conversation and companionship.
The process of choosing assisted living communities can be daunting, but fortunately, there are resources that can help you.
No one can predict the future or the health situations we may face. But you can make informed decisions about your lifestyle in the future, and the time to make those decisions are when you are relatively young and have the financial means to protect your future independence, comfort and destiny. The majority of people don’t find what’s available until there is a crisis. A more informed decision can be made during a peaceful situation.
Denison residents can rest assured as there are several first-class assisted living facilities available to them. Although they all may provide the same services, each is unique in design and atmosphere. Having choices in your own city allows your loved ones to remain close to home.
