The Health District has had a significant role in the growth of a health care system in East Texas, located in Lufkin, that provides care to 12 county draw area in Deep East Texas.

 

Through a management agreement with Memorial Health System, the Health District is one of the few local health departments in the state of Texas that have the opportunity to work hand in hand with a local health system. With this unique situation, the Angelina County & Cities Health District has grown significantly since the partnership was formed in 1997. Doubling our staff size to exceed 50 employees, state of the art facilities in which to provide services, doubling the financial scope to a $6 million dollar budget, adding an in-house pharmacy, and actively participating in Public Health Preparedness activities.

 

Some of the main Public Health Preparedness activities of the Health District is region wide Hurricane planning. After being directly involved in sheltering, evacuation, and medical service for Hurricane Katrina victims and becoming a disaster site ourselves with thousands of individuals to shelter and provide medical service for during Hurricane Rita our preparedness activities have been honed by real disasters.
