United Regional Health Care System is located in Wichita Falls, Texas, and provides comprehensive medical care including inpatient and outpatient services, advanced diagnostics, surgical specialties, and life-saving emergency care to a nine-county service area. We have the area’s only Level II Trauma Center and serve as the Primary Stroke Center for the region.
United Regional’s passion is to provide excellence in health care for the communities we serve. To accomplish this passion, the System continues to reinvest in advanced technology, modern facilities, and the recruitment and retention of highly skilled employees and physicians to ensure that the current and future medical needs of the area are met.
United Regional adheres to five pillars of excellence: People, Service, Quality, Finance and Growth. By making these pillars a part of our culture, United Regional’s employees and medical staff are working together to achieve excellence in health care for the communities we serve.
Throughout the decades, United Regional has continued to grow and improve, from expanding the hospital campus with the addition of the Bridwell Tower (2009) to expanding the Emergency Department (2017) and Barnett Road Medical Building, (creating a new home for Family Medicine Providers in 2019). In February 2023, United Regional opened the new Center for Advanced Orthopedics.
