History

Rural residents should have access to modernized, efficient healthcare and since 1969, when it first opened its doors, that is what Wilbarger General Hospital has strived to provide the residents of Wilbarger and the surrounding counties.

Construction of Wilbarger General Hospital was the fulfillment of a hope shared by thousands of residents of Vernon and Wilbarger County.

Ground was broken to begin construction on the hospital on May 12, 1967 and WGH opened on June 11, 1969.

In 2011 work began on a project to renovate the 28-bed Medical/Surgical Unit on the 3rd Floor. The unit features 24 large, private rooms all with new paint schemes, lighting, decor and flat screen TVs, along with the latest nurse’s call system and computers in each room as the hospital now uses an electronic medical records program.

In 2012, WGH renovated its Radiology Department which now includes a new MRI and fluoroscopy machine that have the latest in digital technology.
